Marianne Vos: Tour de France is bigger than sports

Eight years after winning the inaugural La Course, Marianne Vos is back on the Champs-Élysées in pursuit of a victory that could see her wear the first yellow jersey at the rebirth of the women’s Tour de France – now called the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift.

A victory would indeed mark a special achievement in her career, the closing of a circle of sorts, after her efforts to help bring the historical moment of a women’s Tour de France to fruition.
