There are only 111 runners left in the race on the Tour de France Women before the last and 8th stage, Sunday. If the 7th stage of Tour de France Women with Zwiftdisputed on Saturday between Sélestat and Le Markstein, considerably decanted the general classification, with the more than authoritarian takeover of the Dutchwoman Annemiek van Vleuten (Movistar Team), it also caused great damage to the rear. This is how on Sunday, in Lure (Haute-Saône), there will be thirteen riders less on the starting line of the 8th stage, which will see the survivors of this hard week of racing go to the Super Planche des Belles Girls.

Reusser, Wiebes, Verhulst, Morichon… big names and French women at home
To the non-runners of Saturday noon, Marlen Reusser (Team SD Worx) et Rachele Barbieri (Liv Racing Xstra), it is indeed necessary to add the six competitors who arrived after the deadlines – Anais Morichon, Julia Biriukova (Arkéa Pro Cycling Team), Emily Newsom (EF Education-TIBCO-SVB), India Grangier (Rochelais Charente-Maritime Stadium), Franziska Koch (Team DSM) and Margaux Lookout (Valcar-Travel & Service) – and the five withdrawals recorded during the day, in this case those of Lorena Wiebes (Team DSM), Letizia Borghesi (EF Education-TIBCO-SVB), Nicole Frain, Anne van Rooijen (Parkhotel Valkenburg) et Gladys Verhulst (The Col-Wahoo). Of the 144 runners present last Sunday at the Grand Départ, only 111 remain in the race.
Yuliia Biriukova and Anaïs Morichon arrive 14 seconds behind the deadlines. They therefore leave us this evening at the end of the penultimate stage of this @LeTourFemmes !
Thank you girls, what you have done is extraordinary ♥ï¿½’ï¿½
