Tour de France Femmes succeeds La Course, the first three editions of which 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 select group on the Promenade des Anglau in Nice, while Demi Vollering took the spoils in 2021.
