What can I win?
We've got cycling caps, bidons, musettes, podium pants, and more.... keep an eye out for the daily prize announcement to see what's up for grabs.
We're kicking off Wednesday 7th June with our first rider for Stage 1, Marianne Vos.
(She) has the most interesting race history. In the first year, she won 3 stages and the overall GC; in 2015, she couldn’t race as she was having injury issues, but presented the TV highlights (I interviewed her about that here); then last year, she “only” won one stage and came 4th in the GC.... - Sarah Connolly
Sarah's picked Team WNT’s Lydia Boylan.
If you don’t know Lydia, she’s fantastic. We picked the Irish Road Champion and trackie – the only Irish woman racing here – because she started racing road for Look Mum!’s women’s team, LMNH, and I love her attitude, and her team’s. Team WNT is a small British squad that races domestically, and takes riders to Europe to develop and learn – and in Boylan’s case, win her first UCI race at the Setmana Clasica Valenciana this year. - Sarah Connolly
This French woman is currently in the Queen of the Mountains jersey, but her priority won’t be defending it, because she is the Wiggle road captain and one of the top domestiques out there, who doesn’t necessarily get as much recognition as she should, because her team mate Elisa Longo Borghini is so good at getting into breaks, so there aren’t the images of Cordon-Ragot gurning as she chases back, etc, but she’s been working hard to get to the break point, and doing all she can to support the breaks.
