Tour de Force

It’s been 33 years since women last stood on the startline at the Tour de France. This year, they returned to show the race just what it’s been missing. With a powerful squad packed full of character, EF Education-TIBCO-SVB had six spots to fill. We followed the team behind the scenes throughout their journey to the Champs-Elysees and beyond, experiencing the ups and downs, tears and triumphs that surround the biggest race in the world.
