Tour de l'Aude Cycliste Feminin kicks off tomorrow

//// Team | Official Website ////:
The Tour de l’Aude Cycliste Feminin is arguably the most
prestigious women’s tour in the world. It is definitely one of the longest and most unpredictable; originally four days long, this year the Tour will run for ten days and will include a team time trial, a double day and six 100km days! The hilly countryside of the beautiful l’Aude region of south central France will provide some fast technical riding. The fluctuating temperatures and altitudes in the area mean the riders have to be prepared for extremes, from hot sunny days, to wind, rain and below freezing temperatures.

In 2007 Team will be the only team present representing North America!"

Great to see that the event has expanded and that we have a team participating.
So, I'm sure they will broadcast every stage on VS. with Phil, Paul and Bobke doing the play by play, right? And will have the live race feed on-line, of course. :^)
Small steps, I guess.

lol. Maybe someday. Right now I guess I'm just glad there is a pro racing scene at all for women and I'm sure if women and men were more aggressive in requesting coverage there would be more. So, small steps, exactly. :)
