The 9th edition of La Course will be a multiple day stage-race, which is set to take place after the Tour de France. Effectually, the race will be the Tour de France for women, but it is not known yet whether it will be called the Tour de France.
Reportedly, the race starts in Paris on the last day of La Grande Boucle before continuing with eight stages.
The first three editions of La Course were a circuit race on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. Marianne Vos (2014), Anna van der Breggen (2015) and Chloe Hosking (2016) took the spoils. The 2017 edition saw a mountain top finish stage at the Col d’Izoard followed by a pursuit race in Marseille, while La Course served a high altitude race through the Alps in 2018. These two editions were won by Annemiek van Vleuten before Marianne Vos won 2019’s hilly circuit-race in Pau. Lizzie Deignan won the edition of 2020 with a sprint finish of a slecte group on the Promenade des Anglau in Nice.
