It's a bit late, but here's the place to discuss La Course.
You wanted ASO to care about women's cycling?They really couldn't base La Course on stage 2 of this Tour?
My dream was that they used the Champs Elysées as a prologue, and then bought out the Route de France, a week long race with some mountains, and followed Le Tour with it. That would have been great. An eight stage race with a traditional prologue in Paris, and it could have been sold perfectly at the end of the Tour with "haven't had enough of your cycling fix? Stick with us for the next week for the women's Tour" or whatever name they went with for it. The final day of the Tour is uncontested anyway so it's just a parade, so it'd be cool to have some actual racing to watch while the men are on the parade with champagne and stuff before they arrive in Paris.I still think the last two stages of the Tour - as in, exactly the same route as the men, not some shortened *** - would have been fine.
