The 2022 Women’s Tour de France with Zwift runs from Sunday July 24 to Monday August 1, in what comes closest to a true Women’s Tour de France since 1989.
Contested over eight stages and 1,029 kilometers, 24 teams will race in the hope of glory once the peloton reaches La Planche des Belles Filles on the final day of the Tour.
Marianne Vos (Jumbo-Visma), Annemiek van Vleuten (Movistar), Lorena Wiebes (Team DSM), Demi Vollering (SD Worx) and Marta Cavalli (FDJ-Nouvelle Aquitaine Futuroscope), among others, will participate in the Grand Tour de France, in which is an extremely strong list of runners.
