Rally UHC Cycling Is Headed to La Course by Tour de France

Rally UHC Cycling earned an invitation to the most prestigious day of racing on the women’s calendar, La Course by Le Tour de France. The team received one of only five wildcard spots available and returns to the race for the first time since 2015.

“We’re very happy with the news,” said team director Zach Bell. “This was a huge target for us and receiving the invite is a big compliment to our riders and organization.”

Held in the southern city of Pau on July 19th, the women will race on the same course as the men’s stage 13 time trial. The peloton will tackle five laps of a hilly 24.2 km circuit for a total of 121 km.

Described as a ‘puncheurs’ style course, the race will suit those with raw power more than the pure sprinters or climbers of previous editions. The main climb of the Côte d’Esquillot guarantees fireworks on every lap of the circuit around Pau.

“The circuit in Pau is a World Championship style course that’ll provide great drama,” said Bell. “It will be scrappy racing and for us, that’s how we like it.”

Following stage victories earlier this year at the Redlands Bicycle Classic, Valley of the Sun Stage Race, USA Crits Speedweek, and the Tucson Bicycle Classic, Rally UHC Cycling will arrive in France ready to do battle.

“The team has proven they’re competitive at every race they enter,” said Bell. “We have confidence in the depth of our roster and will field six strong riders that are ready to race their bikes from kilometer one.”

Rally UHC Cycling has a track record of success at La Course, with Canadian road champion Leah Kirchmann sprinting to third in the inaugural edition in 2014 behind World Champion Marianne Vos. This year’s race gives the team another crack at the top step of the podium.

BIKE SIZING

Getting the proper size bike is key to comfort, performance, and safety. The world's best bike, if the wrong size for you, won't make you a better rider.
Our bike sizing guide is meant to give some general direction as to the best size to fit you based on your height. This is just one variable in a very complex system between rider and bike so keep in mind that rider proportions, fitness levels, and other aspects particular to the individual cyclist has a big impact on how you'll feel and perform on your new bike. Our size guidelines are not a substitute for a professional bike fit. If you have size questions, please don't hesitate to visit your local qualified bike fitter or reach out to us.
