Why no women in the Tour de France?
Not even a women's division. ?
As a cyclist...well I was riding modified "10 speeds" in the late 80s and still enjoy the ride in the hills on the MB...I notice that there are a large number of women riding in this "neck of the woods."
Anyway, any thoughts on this.
In my heart, I'm actually Canadian....
Seems to me that there IS a Women's Tour de France, or at any rate WAS, at one point, it just doesn't/didn't get near the publicity. I think that Jeannie Longo, one of the great women's cyclists of all time (and by all accounts one of female athletics' all time biggest ******s), won it a few times, which is how I think I heard of it.

That is interesting. I have even heard of women's cycling events all over Europe, but somehow I never hear of that. :sheesh:
I guess all it took is a Google seach, so I guess the real question is how is the so little talk / interest in the women's trek.
BTW - Womens Tour de France was, June 27-July 1, 2006
For as much as I would inadvertently hear about the Men....

Perhaps it's like NASCAR.
People watch NASCAR (and other so-called 'motor sports') to see fiery crashes.
Perhaps they like to see a bunch of guys permanently damage their perineal regions, whereas women would just be riding bicycles.....
