I can’t believe how long this took me, so I’d consider it a favour if you clicked through! :-) It’s full of amazing women’s cycling though - tons of video and link for the 2014 Thüringen Rundfahrt, Tour de Bretagne and the brand-new BeNe Ladies Tour.
Reshuffling the Giro Rosa and for that matter, the Women’s Tour of Thuringa to June would likely provide media oxygen. It also has the potential to provide more of a gap between the two races as many can’t get to both events now.
But then when do you have the Emakumeen Euskal Bira race currently held mid-June – a highly respected race among the peloton and women’s cycling fans. And if you’re reshuffling, what happens to the Tour of Chonming Island World Cup mid-May? What race do you choose to have overshadowed by the Tour because these athletes can’t not race for three weeks during July? This is the feedback I received when I asked around."
