Hey all. Just a couple of questions for you ultra fans.

What would be considered the WOMAN'S Tour de France? The ultimate yearly race?

Also, is the tour open to woman? Has any woman ever even been close to making it onto a tour team?

Thanks

ii don't know about women in the tour de france, but there is a women's tour de france (le tour de france feminin). i don't know if its *considered* the "women's tour de france", as in, the ultimate.
