Good news. Jumbo-Visma adding a top tier women's team for 2021. They've already reached out to Vos and AVV as potential leaders. I would imagine they won't have trouble putting together a solid team with the depth of women's talent in the Netherlands.
 
... you mean her.

But if Movistar mess up a Norwegian champions' jersey then all is lost. I mean, I know Sky performed that white mini-flag abortion on EBH's back in 2012 and was it Dimension Data that did that pathetic attempt at one for him too or were they still MTN at that point? Really though, you shouldn't be able to screw up the Nordic Cross jerseys.

Sorry, yes. Edited to fix my mistake.

I really hope they can do a nice one for her. I do not expect a Quickstep type one, as I think that is asking way too much.
 
Girls should file a petition to transfer Annemiek into the men's peloton.
She's training with boys anyway.

Such a shame Leah Thomas had problems at that point.
And Garcia looked like she's really struggling all the way through the broadcast, but I guess it's just her style.
 
Mavi was a triathlete until she was 30 years old, so it's perhaps not a surprise that her style has its shortcomings, seeing as she'll only have been partially training for it until such time as most pros have long since settled into their style.

So the Tour de l'Ardêche has some real climbing once more. This looks great.



There's also the usual Mont Lozère stage on Sunday, no Finiels this year.

Interesting names on the startlist: Audrey Cordon-Ragot, Mavi García, Shara Marche-Gillow, Alice Barnes, Tiffany Cromwell, Lauren Stephens, Diana Carolina Peñuela, Eider Merino, Lourdes Oyarbide, Nicole Hänselmann, Chloe Hosking, Sara Poidevin, Anna Kiesenhofer, Kasia Wilkos. There was an interesting Ukrainian team but that has been withdrawn, potentially a Covid-related travel issue? Mavi García won by 5" from a group of 15 in stage 1, tomorrow promises to create big gaps, and I feel fairly confident that the winner will come from one of the Spaniards, thye seem to like this race because these days Spain in women's cycling are a bit like, well, Spain in men's cycling in the 60s and 70s. Aupa Eider!

Looks better than all but two of this year’s Tour stages. Will there be coverage?
 
The best you'll get will be from here.

The coverage has thus far been mostly pre-race discussion, not sure how much filming on the road is being done, obviously it's restricted to youtube/streaming what with how all-pervading the Tour is, which obviously is not competition the Tour de l'Ardêche usually has!
