The Women’s Cycling Tour 2014
A HUGE congratulation to all the ladies who participated in this national event that started Stage 3 of the race on our very own seafront!
This is the country’s first ever international stage race, bringing the world’s top riders to compete against Britain’s Olympic heroines. Participants includes reigning World and Olympic Road Race Champion Marianne Vos and her Rabo Liv team, Orica – AIS, Boels Dolmans, Specialized Lululemon and the Wiggle Honda team of British Olympians Laura Trott, Joanna Rowsell and Dani King. Alongside them were the national side of the world’s number one ranked nation, the Netherlands, plus a Great Britain national team which was led by Leicestershire’s Lucy Garner.
The Women’s Tour has been awarded the top status by cycling’s governing body, the UCI, placing the race on a par with the Ladies Tour of Qatar and the Giro Rosa as one of the world’s top ranked stage races
