Tour de France Open to Reviving Women’s Race After 24 Years

Tour de France organizer Amaury Sport Organisation is willing to discuss holding a women’s cycling race alongside the men’s event after a 24-year hiatus.

Jean-Etienne Amaury, chairman of the family-owned unit, said executives have debated the subject after a petition backed by Olympic road-race gold medalist Marianne Vos gathered more than 65,000 signatures in 11 days.
