This is the REAL Tour de France, with no doping, true courage and love for cycling, no helicopters following them everywhere they go, no scandals of any kind: The LIÉGE TO PARIS.
I truly recommend you to pay a visit to their web page and follow their accomplishments. They are awesome! They are going to ride 3,472 kilometers in all and as of now, they have left the Alps behind!
The name of the team is RÉVE and I will be following them very closely, that is for sure.
This July, in partnership with peloton magazine and on behalf of Bikes Belong, we’re going back to France with six female amateurs intent on writing a new chapter in the annals of women’s cycling. The Rêve women’s team will ride the complete 2012 Tour de France route, proving to themselves, other female cyclists, and women thinking about taking up the sport, that any bicycle dream is possible. In true Rêve fashion they’ll ride one day ahead of the men’s Tour, stay in the same spartan hotels and endure the unrelenting grind of daily transfers that define the three-week journey around France. Every training mile and every kilometer in France will be pedaled in support of Bikes Belong. Bikes Belong is a national coalition of bicycle retailers and suppliers working to make cycling safer and more accessible for women. We aim to make a significant contribution to that purpose.
The Women’s SuperSix will feature the advanced ergonomics of FSA components, the latest SRAM Red with Quarq power meters we hope to share the data, and in the mountains, we’ll have the advantage of SRAM’s WiFLi climbing gearing. Understanding that no bike component is more important or personal than your choice of saddle the team will have the full benefit of Fizik women’s-specific technology under them.
