Tour De France Director Christian Prudhomme Calls Proposed Women's Version Premature
Published July 29, 2013
COOKING IT UP: The PA reported Harman's letter came as Cookson confirmed he is currently arranging a meeting with ASO about staging a women's race. Cookson -- who is also head of British Cycling -- "appeared more positive about the prospect of a major women's race and announced that a five-day international stage race will be held during next year's Tour of Britain." Cookson said, "It will be the first step in having a full equivalent Tour of Britain as it develops." Cookson also "appeared to distance himself from Harman's specific proposal, urging caution over any attempts simply to 'mimic' the men's Tour." Cookson: "Women's teams that are bolted on to men's teams is not the only answer" (PA, 7/26).
