Tour de France Femmes: Demi Vollering climbs to stage win and yellow jersey

Stage seven report: Demi Vollering took a spectacular and career-defining win at the summit of the Col du Tourmalet in the Pyrenees, to take over the lead in the Tour de France Femmes , with only Sunday’s 22km time trial remaining.

Thanks for following what was a dramatic stage seven of the Tour de France Femmes . What a finish! The Col du Tourmalet did not disappoint. I’ll leave you with these words from Alan who emailed in: “Great finale!! Tomorrow should be a burner!!!”

The top 10 on General Classification

Demi Vollering (SD Worx) 24hr 48min 10sec

Kasia Niewiadoma (Canyon-SRAM) +1min 50sec

Annemiek van Vleuten (Movistar) +2min 28sec

Lotte Kopecky (SD Worx) +2min 35sec

Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio (AG Soudal-Quickstep) +2min 39sec

Juliette Labous (DSM–Firmenich) +3min 41sec

Ane Santesteban González (Jayco-AlUla) +6min 23sec

Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig (FDJ-Suez) +6min 42sec

Ricarda Bauernfeind (Canyon-SRAM) +7min 42sec

Amanda Spratt (Lidl-Trek) +8min 18sec

Van Vleuten speaks … The Movistar rider says she’s disappointed and was hoping to have a better day. “I didn’t have my best day out there… but I had full confidence to go, that’s why I went on the Col d’Aspin. If I’d had a really good day, it was the best plan to make it hard from [there]. But yeah, I didn’t have a good day so I had to pay the price at the top.”

What did you say to Vollering on the descent and why didn’t you ride together? “She didn’t want to ride. So, I said if you don’t ride then I also don’t ride. But she also had a point, she had two teammates behind. For me, the goal to attack on Col d’Aspin was not to drop everyone there, it was more to do a first effort but maybe in the end, it was not so smart for the shape I was in today. But you never know that and I always like to race with my heart and you always have to focus on your strengths.” Asked about her time gap on the GC, van Vleuten says: “I’m here to win the Tour de France and not to come second, third or maybe fourth, to be honest … It’s obvious that Demi Vollering was another level today.”

Top five in stage seven

1. Demi Vollering (SD Worx) 2. Kasia Niewiadoma (Canyon-SRAM) 3. Annemiek van Vleuten (Movistar) 4. Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio (AG Soudal-Quickstep) 5. Juliette Labous (DSM–Firmenich)

Niewiadoma speaks… she’s sat on the floor trying to catch her breath and says she’s so happy that all the work she did in her training camp has paid off. Vollering interrupts to shake her hand and call her “super strong”. Niewiadoma replies:“You too girl.”

“I saw how they [Vollering and van Vleuten] were competing with each other, so in Polish we have this saying that ‘if the two are fighting, the third one is winning’. So, I was hoping [for] them to get involved with themselves and to look for my own opportunity. The pity was the group behind got back … I just didn’t want to go back to the group, I knew that I preferred to keep my own pace and that I feel mentally stronger when I’m on my own.”

Vollering wins stage seven!

Vollering raises her arms as she crosses the line and takes the stage win. She’s not only truimphant on the iconic Tourmalet, but she’s also taken the maillot jaune from her teammate, Kopecky. Remember, she was also given a 20sec penalty earlier this week.

300m to go: Niewiadoma is 1min 20sec behind Vollering. The SD Worx rider gets out of the saddle for one final push towards the finish line.

1km to go: Vollering is either grimacing or smiling. The Tourmalet is tough but look at the support out there. It looks like a great atmosphere … from what you can see through the fog. She passes through the flamme rouge.

2km to go: There’s a clip of Vollering’s attack below, if you want to examine it in more detail/see it again.

3km to go: Vollering has a 1min 40sec gap to the yellow jersey group. Niewiadoma is about 40sec behind Vollering and is grimacing as she pushes again and again. You can see the pain on van Vleuten’s face as the crowds cheer her on.

Vibes on the Tourmalet 🤌 pic.twitter.com/CH0FrPQYEr — Zwift (@GoZwift) July 29, 2023

Vollering catches Niewiadoma

4km to go: Well, it was Vollering who moved first…she’s attacked and caught Niewiadoma. The Polish rider can’t hang on and Vollering goes solo.

5km to go: Is van Vleuten going to attack? Vollering seems to be waiting for her to go, but what if she doesn’t? Can Niewiadoma hold on? These are the questions going through my mind. The visibility on the Tourmalet is quite bad, isn’t it?

6km to go: It’s a big effort by Niewiadoma but she’s still looking good as the gradient ramps up. Behind, Labous is getting impatient and trying to push the pace. I can see the mist that Lloyd and Stephens were talking about now as the riders ascend further up the mountain.

9km to go: Niewiadoma has pushed the gap and now has 32sec on the chasers. Come on Kasia. This is impressive … keep it going!

We’re into the mountains! Stage 7 of the Tour de France Femme avec Zwift could see major shakeups to the GC. Check out two of the epic mountain climbs the riders will be taking on today with these key Strava segments from the course: Col du Tourmalet: https://t.co/bsdDJs1LC7 pic.twitter.com/kdqlcefHAD — Strava (@Strava) July 29, 2023

10km to go: Manon Lloyd is reporting from the Tourmalet. She’s at 6km to the summit and says it’s very misty. Although it’s 17C where she is, Lloyd says it feels much colder. It was 24C at the bottom of the climb, she says. Stephens reports that the visibility on the line is 30 metres due to thick fog.

11km to go: Matt Stephens says there’s a tailwind on the Tourmalet today. Niewiadoma has a 9sec gap but van Vleuten and Vollering are joined by Reusser, Kopecky, Moolman Pasio, Labous, Uttrup Ludwig and Santesteban.

13km to go: Ooh, this is interesting…Eurosport have dug out an interview in which Niewiadoma spoke about using van Vleuten and Vollering’s focus on each other to make a move. Well, she did exactly that.

Marianne Vos has abandoned on the Col d'Aspin

14km to go: Jumbo-Visma have announced that Marianne Vos has abandoned the Tour on the Col d’Aspin. According to their statement, Vos isn’t feeling the best and wants to recover for the upcoming world championships.

🇫🇷 #TDFF2023 Marianne has left the race on Col d’Aspin. She’s not feeling one hundred percent fit. It’s now time to recover and focus on the upcoming WC. 🍀 pic.twitter.com/X6sODBRxzK — Team Jumbo-Visma Women (@JumboVismaWomen) July 29, 2023

15km to go: We’re getting to the business end of this stage. This is a pivotal moment for Niewiadoma. Here’s a look at what she’s got to tackle:

The King of the Pyrenees, judge, jury and executioner of this #TDFF2023 , and at its summit, a new queen! Le Roi des Pyrénées, juge de paix de ce #TDFF2023 , et à son sommet, une nouvelle reine! #TDFF2023 #WatchTheFemmes @GoZwift pic.twitter.com/oMt7uYjMBc — Le Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift (@LeTourFemmes) July 29, 2023

16km to go: Niewiadoma is 45sec ahead of Vollering and van Vleuten. Reusser is setting the pace in the chase group but they are trailing by 1min 05sec. The Tourmalet is looming.

20km to go: Both Peters will be happy with this turn of events: Niewiadoma is now the virtual yellow jersey wearer. The commentary have just called van Vlueten and Vollering’s lack of a reaction to Niewiadoma’s move as “like a standoff in the street in a western.” That’s not a bad way of putting it …

22km to go: This could be dangerous for van Vleuten and Vollering. They’ve given Niewiadoma a bit too much room and the Canyon-SRAM rider has carved out a 26sec lead.

25km to go: Niewiadoma is shooting down the descent as Vollering and van Vleuten follow with a sizeable gap. John was watching the climb up the Col d’Aspin with interest. He writes in to ask if that was “van Vleuten’s best effort?” He has some more thoughts to share: “At the moment, Vollering in particular seems to be allowing van Vleuten to tire herself into the headwind. Of course, as I write that, Niewiadoma goes to the front - which seems a bit odd.”

29km to go: Niewiadoma is first to cross the summit and bags 10 QOM points. Van Vleuten and Vollering take 8pts and 6pts, respectively. The trio are going to start the descent now.

31km to go: Niewiadoma is taking turns with Van Vleuten but Vollering doesn’t fancy chipping in. Vollering is the only one with a teammate in the chasing group. Kopecky is also there with Moolman Pasio, Reusser, Marta Cavalli (FDJ-Suez), Ane Santesteban (Jayco-AlUla) and Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig (FDJ-Suez).

Van Vleuten, Vollering and Niewiadoma on the Col d’Aspin.

32km to go: The trio of van Vleuten, Vollering and Niewiadoma – all on the final podium in last year’s Tour – are stretching their gap. Labous is driving the chase, with Ashleigh Moolman Pasio (AG Insurance–Soudal–Quick-Step) and Marlen Reusser (SD Worx) on her wheel.

34km to go: Lippert has finished her turn and it’s over to van Vleuten who attacks. She’s got a small gap and has Niewiadoma and Demi Vollering (SD Worx) on her wheel.

35km to go: Lippert may have crashed earlier, but she’s up front on the climb now. There are about 25 riders in the leading group as we drop to under 6km of ascent left. The peloton has become really strung out and Kastelijn has been dropped.

36km to go: Another Peter has emailed in and also (like our earlier Peter) would like Niewiadoma to be victorious. He writes: “Would be good to see Niewiadoma win. I’m sure she’ll be up there but hard to see past AVV for the stage and the GC.”

38km to go: The bidons are off…the riders are climbing and will be for a little while. This is a long one and they want to carry as little weight as possible. Below, is a look at the climb profile. Just another 8.5km of climbing until the top of the Col d’Aspin…

41km to go: The breakaway has been caught as the riders begin the climb up the 12km Col d’Aspin. It has an average gradient of 6.5% and a summit at 1,490m.

...and the other official segment: Col d'Aspin (let's hope the pretty views distract a bit from the pain of the ascent)! https://t.co/Soaib9zBTN pic.twitter.com/dnsnMjSr54 — Strava (@Strava) July 29, 2023

Margot Pompanon takes 20pts in the intermediate sprint

46km to go: Pompanon is the first across the line and takes 20pts in the intermediate sprint. It was a nice try from Poidevin to get across to the leading duo but she’s been caught by the peloton. In other news, the youngest rider in the Tour, Babette van der Wolf (Lifeplus Wahoo) has abandoned.

49km to go: There’s an intermediate sprint coming up soon. Andersen and Pompanon have increased their gap on the peloton to around 50sec. Poidevin is still trying to get over to the pair and trails by 20sec.

51km to go: Juliette Labous (DSM–Firmenich) spoke to Eurosport ahead of today’s stage. She thinks the big climbs combined with potential thunderstorms will make it “very special”. It would definitely make for a dramatic stage, in many ways!

56km to go: Margot Pompanon (St Michel-Mavic-Auber93) and Susanne Andersen (Uno-X) have attacked and opened up a gap of 25sec. Sara Poidevin (EF Education-Tibco-SVB) is trying to bridge across and is about 5secs behind the leaders.

62km to go: Demay has been caught and it looks like the peloton are all back together … for now. Over on Eurosport, Iris Slappendel is concerned about the dark clouds forming. She thinks rain is on the way. Also, Peter has emailed in and is the first to share his prediction for today’s stage win. He writes: “I think I’ll be cheering on Kasia Niewiadoma for the stage win today. Whoever gets it, I’m sure it’ll be dramatic!” He asks who’s my favourite but I couldn’t possibly say…aka I haven’t decided yet.

65km to go: Lucinda Brand (Lidl Trek), Justine Ghekiere (AG Insurance-Soudal Quick-Step), Floortje Mackaij (Movistar), Sheyla Gutierrez (Movistar) and Julie De Wilde (Fenix-Deceuninck) are among the riders to join Ton. Demay is about to get caught…

68km to go: After attacking solo, Coralie Demay (St Michel-Mavic-Auber93) has managed to get a 37sec gap from the bunch. Quinty Ton (Liv Racing Teqfind) has decided to go try and get across, while a group of 14 riders are in hot pursuit.

Elisa Longo Borghini and Elisa Balsamo are out of the Tour

There were a number of non-starters this morning, including two of Lidl-Trek’s big names: Elisa Longo Borghini and Elisa Balsamo. Longo Borghini is out due to a skin infection that has required hospital treatment. Chiara Consonni (UAE Team ADQ), Maria Confalonieri (Uno-X) and Ewers have also abandoned.

🚨 Unfortunately @ElisaLongoB has also had to withdraw from the @LeTourFemmes ahead of today’s Col du Tourmalet stage, one which she was looking forward to. The Italian champion has a skin infection at the top of the left thigh, which required hospital treatment after #TDFF2023 … pic.twitter.com/EpNXnimiZp — Lidl-Trek (@LidlTrek) July 29, 2023

74km to go: There’s been quite a few attacks already but none of them have managed to stick yet. Lizzie Deignan (Lidl Trek) looks keen to create a breakaway, as does Marta Lach (Ceratizit-WNT).

78km to go: Who will triumph today? Let me know your predictions. You can get in touch via email or by tweeting me.

Split predictions! 🔮 Whatever happens, we are in for an exciting day and probably a Dutch victory... but will it be @AvVleuten or @demivollering ? 🇳🇱🏔️💛 #TDFF2023 #TDFFdata pic.twitter.com/QMxhIwTSEE — letourdata (@letourdata) July 29, 2023

Liane Lippert has crashed

80km to go: Eight placed in the GC, Liane Lippert is down. She gets up gingerly, is checked over by her team and gets back on her bike. The TV coverage now shows her trying to get back to the bunch and being seen to by the doctor as she cycles along.

💥Early crash in the peloton, with 🇩🇪 @LianeLippert hitting the floor. Everyone is back up and riding. 💥 Chute dans le peloton, avec 🇩🇪 @LianeLippert au sol.

81km to go: After suffering a nasty crash yesterday, Veronica Ewers (EF Education-TIBCO-SVB) has not started today due to a broken collarbone. Amazingly, Ewers rode around 50km after the crash to finish stage six. Ouch…

86km to go: The riders have started off at a very fast pace. As soon as the flag dropped, Julie De Wilde (Fenix-Deceuninck) attacked and was followed by Alice Barnes (Human Powered Health) before being swiftly brought back by the bunch. Marta Lach (Ceratizit-WNT) has also had a go but no one is getting away at the moment.

Racing has begun on stage seven

89km to go: Both Kopecky and Annemiek van Vleuten (Movistar) had mechanicals during the neutralised start but were sorted out by their mechanics and got back in the bunch. The flag has dropped and the riders are off…

Riders on the start line of stage seven of the Tour de France Femmes.

Stage seven is underway!

The riders are rolling out and will have a 5km neutralised start.

Marion Rousse on stage seven: “This is the queen stage of this second edition,” says the race director in a Tour video briefing. “We’ll start in Lannemezan and finish at the summit of the Col du Tourmalet. Before that, though, there’s the Col d’Aspin. It’s a really tough stage: very short, 90km, very intense. At the top of the Col du Tourmalet, we’ll pass through La Mongie … Obviously, this long 17km at an average gradient of 7.5% is going to do some damage. This will really be the decisive stage for the overall ranking, with all the big female climbers looking forward to battling it out on the slopes of the famous Col du Tourmalet.”

Who’s in what jersey?

Yellow: Lotte Kopecky (SD Worx) 21hr 54min 30sec

Green: Lotte Kopecky (SD Worx) 201pts

Polka-dot: Yara Kastelijn (Fenix–Deceuninck) 23pts

White: Cedrine Kerbaol (Ceratizit-WNT)

Lotte Kopecky will start stage seven of the Tour de France Femmes in the yellow jersey.

Lotte Kopecky (SD Worx) 21hr 54min 30sec

Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio (AG Soudal-Quickstep) +53sec

Annemiek van Vleuten (Movistar) +55sec

Elisa Longo Borghini (Lidl-Trek) +55sec

Kasia Niewiadoma (Canyon-SRAM) +55sec

Emma Norsgaard holds off pack to win stage six of Tour de France Femmes

Stage six report: Emma Norsgaard won stage six of the Tour de France Femmes after a three rider breakaway, also containing Agnieszka Skalniak-Sojka and Sandra Alonso, held off the pursuing peloton in what was the final chance for the sprinters in this year’s race.

Stage seven: Lannemezan to Tourmalet Bagnères-de-Bigorre (89.8km)

As my friend put it this morning: happy Tourmalet day! Today is the big one, the climb we’ve all been waiting to see the riders tackle … it’s the savage Col du Tourmalet. A favourite since it was introduced in the Tour de France in 1910, today marks the first time it’s been included in the Tour de France Femmes (yes, I know it’s only the second edition but don’t spoil the fun). Saturday’s stage may only be 89.8km, but it’s set to split the peloton apart.

The penultimate stage will be a decisive day for the maillot jaune and a day for the climbers. SD Worx’s Lotte Kopecky has been in the yellow jersey every day since her stage one victory, but will today mark the end of that? Although stage seven will begin with a relatively gentle and rolling terrain, the riders will then face the Col d’Aspin before the 17km haul to the 2,110 metre summit of the legendary Tourmalet.

Speaking about the inclusion of the high mountains in this year’s Tour de France Femmes, race director, Marion Rousse, said that it was in a bid to make the event “a little bit more historical”. She added: “The Tourmalet is a mythical climb and all the champions want to write their names into the record books by winning there.” It’s going to be a big day, so settle in and join me as we follow the riders on stage seven in the Pyrenees.

Tour de France Femmes 2023 preview: Full schedule and how to watch live women's Grand Tour cycling action

Reigning champion Annemiek van Vleuten is targeting another Tour de France Femmes crown, as the second modern edition of the stage race takes place on 23 July to 30 July. Here is all you need to know before the start in Clermont-Ferrand.

Annemiek van Vleuten claimed the 2022 Tour de France Femmes. Demi Vollering finished second and Katarzyna Niewiadoma third.

The second edition of the most prestigious stage race on the women’s cycling calendar is billed as being the biggest yet. Tour de France Femmes 2023 is offering a diverse route starting in the highland region of Massif Central and finishing at the foot of the Pyrenees in Pau.

The big question before this year’s race has been whether anyone can challenge defending champion Annemiek van Vleuten , who is also an Olympic gold and silver medallist and four-time world champion.

The 40-year-old Dutchwoman has already claimed La Vuelta Femenina and the Giro d’Italia Donne this season, and victory in the Tour de France Femmes would complete the set of 2023 women's Grand Tour race wins.

22 teams will be at the start line to battle over 8 stages, not just for the yellow leader’s jersey, but also the green points classification jersey, the polka-dot jersey for leader of the mountain classification and the white jersey for the best young rider under 23 years of age.

Read on to find everything you need to know about the Tour de France Femmes 2023.

Tour de France Femmes 2023 route

Tour de France Femmes 2023 consists of eight stages with a total of 956 kilometres of racing. The peloton starts with a fairly flat stage around Clermont-Ferrand, and from the second hilly stage, the riders slowly move towards the southwest of France.

A mix of flat and hilly stages follow until the seventh stage, where the big battle among the GC favourites will be fought on the mountainous route to the iconic Col du Tourmalet in the Pyrenees.

The race will conclude with a 22 kilometres individual time trial around Pau.

Riders to watch at the Tour de France Femmes 2023

Two-time road race world champion Annemiek van Vleuten is the big favourite for the Tour de France Femmes 2023. In the Giro d’Italia Donne that finished earlier this month, the Olympic time trial champion claimed three stages and won the general classification by almost four minutes to Juliette Labous of France in second place.

The Movistar rider is in the middle of her last season before retiring, but after having claimed both the overall in the Giro d’Italia Donne and La Vuelta Femenina, the defending champion has proved that she isn't finished yet.

Last year, van Vleuten clinched the yellow jersey by taking the last two stages of the Tour de France Femmes. 3 minutes and 48 seconds was the gap to second place Demi Vollering .

The second placed rider from last year’s edition could also be the biggest threat for van Vleuten this year. Vollering completed the Ardennes hat-trick of one-day races earlier this season, winning the Amstel Gold Race, La Flèche Wallonne, and Liège-Bastogne-Liège Femmes.

The 26-year-old SD Worx rider is currently leading the UCI World Rankings, as she has secured an incredible 13 victories already this season, and the Dutch road race champion has taken a big step up since last year’s second place at this race.

At the La Vuelta Femenina, Vollering looked like she was about to be crowned the overall winner, but van Vleuten capitalized on a toilet break and gained more than a minute on the penultimate stage to ultimately win the race.

By the looks of this season’s results, we can hope to see a breathtaking Dutch battle between van Vleuten and Vollering.

Other riders, who potentially can fight for the overall victory are Elisa Longo Borghini of Italy, Juliette Labous of France, and Katarzyna Niewiadoma of Poland.

In the battle for the green jersey, the European road race champion Lorena Wiebes will be the woman to beat. The Dutchwoman has a strong team to support her in SD Worx.

Her 24-year-old compatriot Charlotte Kool of dsm-firmenich has showed earlier this season that she has the top speed to beat Wiebes in a bunch sprint.

Last year’s winner of the green jersey and arguably the greatest female cyclist of all time, Marianne Vos , also needs to be mentioned among the contenders for the points classification.

As the general classification riders will most likely battle it out on the decisive mountain stage to Col du Tourmalet, they will also be the favourites to claim the polka dot jersey after the final stage in Pau.

Tour de France Femmes 2023: Heartbreak for Julie Van de Velde as Lorena Wiebes wins Stage 3

Imogen Ainsworth

Updated 25/07/2023 at 17:23 GMT

Lotte Kopecky tightened her grip on yellow – at least until the mountains arrive – with four more bonus seconds when finishing third on Stage 3. But the day was about her SD Worx team-mate Lorena Wiebes, who claimed her first win of the 2023 Tour de France Femmes with a typically impressive sprint. Marianne Vos took her increasingly familiar second spot behind the explosive Wiebes.

Tour de France Femmes   klassement

tour de france vrouwen 2023

Pure klasse! Lotte Kopecky soleert naar ritwinst en het eerste geel in de Tour de France Femmes

Lotte Kopecky (27) heeft haar eerste ritoverwinning in de Tour de France Femmes te pakken. Op het enige knikje in de finale, met de top op 10 kilometer van de finish, gooide Kopecky haar troeven op tafel. Niemand had een antwoord klaar op de explosie van de Belgische kampioene, die onhoudbaar naar een triomf in Clermont-Ferrand stoomde. Ploeggenote Lorena Wiebes tekende voor een één-tweetje bij SD Worx.

tour de france vrouwen 2023

Oppermachtig.

Lotte Kopecky  werkte er al maanden naar toe, nu heeft ze haar zege en de gele trui ook beet. Met een snedige versnelling liet ze iedereen de hielen zien op de Côte de Durtol.

Dankzij een imposant tijdritje bouwde ze haar voorsprong daarna alleen maar verder uit. Ze bolde uiteindelijk over de streep met ruim een halve minuut voorsprong.

Onze landgenote wordt dankzij haar zege meteen ook de eerste niet-Nederlandse die de gele trui mag dragen. De groene trui en de bolletjestrui mag ze eveneens in haar kleerkast hangen.

Maar ze zet vooral ook weer de enorme sterkte van SD Worx in de verf. Als alle ogen gericht zijn op Vollering en Wiebes, rondt Kopecky het maar af.

Lang leek Wiebes nochtans nog aan te klampen en opnieuw op de leiderstrui af te stevenen.   Pas bij de demarrage van Kopecky moest de Nederlandse spurtbom passen. Ze snelde wel nog naar de tweede plaats.

Morgen straalt Kopecky dus in de gele trui, in een etappe die haar eigenlijk nog beter zou moeten liggen. Zet ze haar leiderstrui dan nog wat kracht bij?

tour de france vrouwen 2023

Uitslag Rit 1

Fase per fase, lotte kopecky houdt de rest af in het slot en pakt meteen de eerste rit in de tour.

tour de france vrouwen 2023

Gele Lotte!

Ze doet het! Kopecky claimt de eerste gele trui! Ze wint met een ruime voorsprong. In de achtergrond sprint ploeggenote Wiebes naar plek 2, Kool wordt derde.

Slotkilometer!

De slotkilometer wordt een ererondje voor Lotte Kopecky. De Belgische van SD-Worx heeft de rit, de gele, groene en de bolletjestrui beet! Wat een prestatie!

Niewiadoma probeert nog richting Kopecky te springen, maar Vollering duikt meteen op het wiel. De Nederlandse stopt perfect af voor haar ploegmaat.

Het lijkt gewonnen spel! Het gat tussen onze landgenote en de groep der favorieten tikt ondertussen de 45 seconden aan.

Nog 5 kilometer

Met nog 5 kilometer te gaan heeft Kopecky een voorsprong van ruim een halve minuut! De kans op de gele trui wordt met de meter groter.

In de achtergrond valt het even stil! Kopecky perst er een tijdritje uit en rijdt ondertussen al 25" weg van de favorieten.

Kopecky stoomt in haar eentje door naar Clermont-Ferrand. Haar voorsprong bedraagt ongeveer 10 seconden. Haalt ze het tot aan de streep?

tour de france vrouwen 2023

Daar gaat Kopecky!

Kopecky dropt een bommetje! Met nog enkele honderden meters klimwerk op de teller knalt ze weg van het groepje favorieten!

Wiebes overleeft!

Wiebes zit er nog steeds bij! Overleeft ze ook de laatste 500 meter van de klim?

De deur achterin staat wagenwijd open. Onder meer Grace Brown moet laten lopen.

Reusser neemt de hele klim tot nu toe voor haar rekening. Met een stevig tempo houdt ze iedereen in toom.

Côte de Durtol

Ze zijn eraan begonnen! Het steilste stuk ligt meteen al aan het begin, maar de sprintsters blijven aanhaken en er komt niet direct een aanvalspoging.

Binnen 2 kilometer beginnen de rensters aan de enige beklimming van de dag. Er wordt toch serieus wat vuurwerk verwacht.

Eens de rensters de top van de Côte de Durtol gerond hebben, gaat het in dalende lijn naar de finish. Heel wat bochten maken er een technische passage van, als dat maar geen valpartijen oplevert!

Dit is ook wel een klimmetje voor Niewiadoma.

Sd-worx-treintje.

Bij SD-Worx wordt het treintje stilaan op de rails gezet. Majerus haakt af, haar ploegmakkers zorgen voor een stevig tempo in het peloton.

2024 Tour de France Femmes Schedule

2024 tour de france femmes contenders.

Tour de France Femmes

Defending champion Demi Vollering (SD Worx) is likely to return to the 2024 Tour de France Femmes to try and win a second consecutive overall title after securing the yellow jersey in the 2023 edition.

Annemiek van Vleuten , the winner of the 2022 Tour de France Femmes and fourth in 2023, has retired from professional cycling after a sparkling 16-year career and so will not be competing in the third edition of the event.

Two-time podium finisher Kasia Niewiadoma (Canyon-SRAM), gravel world champion, will line up as one of the main contenders for the overall title.

Road race world champion Lotte Kopecky (also SD Worx) won the opening stage last year and wore the yellow jersey for six days, climbed with the best to the summit of the Col du Tourmalet, and then stormed to third place in the time trial in Pau. She closed out the eight-day race by winning the green points jersey and taking second overall behind her teammate Vollering. She will be one to watch in the 2024 edition of the Tour de France Femmes.

Juliette Labous (Team dsm-firmenich) was the top French rider in last year's Tour de France Femmes, and other riders to watch will be Ashleigh Moolman Pasio (AG Insurance-Soudal-QuickStep) and Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig (FDJ-SUEZ).

Tour de France Femmes History

  • You’ve come a long way, baby - Vital statistics show sea change in women’s cycling
  • Marianne Martin: Remembering the magic of the 1984 women's Tour de France
  • La Grande Boucle, La Course and the return of the women's Tour de France

Cyclingnews  has assembled a full list of champions dating back to the first version in 1955 and the original women's Tour de France stage race held from 1984-1989 to the modern Tour de France Femmes.

The women's peloton raced their  first official launch of the women's Tour de France  until  1984 won by American Marianne Martin . It was an 18-day race held simultaneously as the men's event and along much of the same but shortened routes with shared finish lines. The Société du Tour de France, which later became part of ASO in 1992, managed both men's and women's events. 

The women's Tour de France ended in 1989, and while ASO went on to organise women's one-day races like La Flèche Wallonne, Liège-Bastogne-Liège, La Course, and the inaugural Paris-Roubaix Femmes (in 2021), the women's peloton had not been included as part of the official Tour de France for the past 30 years.

Other women's stage races in France, not run by ASO, took place, including the Tour Cycliste Féminin, which had started in 1992, and the re-named Grande Boucle Féminine Internationale, until it came to an end in 2009. 

La Course by La Tour de France was then created in 2014 following a petition to ASO calling for a women's Tour de France. Le Tour Entier's petition was led by Kathryn Bertine, Marianne Vos, Emma Pooley and Chrissie Wellington and secured 97,307 signatures. The event was held across various platforms, from a one-day to a multi-day event between 2014 and 2021. 

Champions included  Marianne Vos ,  Anna van der Breggen  and  Chloe Hosking  in the first three editions from 2014 to 2016.  Annemiek van Vleuten  won in 2017 and 2018, followed by Vos in 2019,  Lizzie Deignan  in 2020 and  Demi Vollering  in 2021.

Despite its controversy, La Course had become one of the most showcased events in the Women's WorldTour, and although the wait was longer than anyone anticipated, it finally became the stepping stone to the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift.

Tour de France men's race director Christian Prudhomme made a  long-awaited confirmation  that Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO) would launch a women's  Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift in 2022  with Marion Rousse as the event's race director.

Zwift announced that it would become the title sponsor of the  Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift  on a five-year deal through 2026.

The first edition of the rebirth of the 2022 Tour de France Femmes was an eight-day race that began on the Champs-Élysées in Paris in conjunction with the final stage 21 of the men's Tour de France and ended on La Super Planche des Belles Filles, where  Annemiek van Vleuten  (Movistar) was crowned the overall champion.

The 2023 Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift route hit new heights with 956 kilometres and a grand finale in the Pyrenees with a mountaintop finish on the iconic Tourmalet on stage 7 and a final stage 8 time trial in Pau, with Demi Vollering winning the overall title.

The 2024 Tour de France Femmes will showcase back-to-back summit finishes at Le Grand Bornand and Alpe d'Huez where the overall champion will be crowned.

Mannen die we in het voorjaar de Vlaamse en Ardense heuvels zien bedwingen kunnen we ook nu vooraan verwachten. De Côte de San Luca is geen Muur van Huy, maar wel zeer lastig als hij in de finale 2 keer kort na elkaar beklommen moet worden. Wij schrijven daarom de volgende namen op als favorieten voor de winst. Uiteraard Tadej Pogacar van UAE. Maar ook mannen als Stephen Williams (Winnaar Waalse Pijl 2o24), Maxim van Gils, Benoit Cosnefroy, Santiago Buitrago, Romain Grégoire, Mathieu van der Poel moeten in Bologna mee kunnen doen om de dagzege.
