After the launch of La Course, Marianne Vos and her friends sat down and came up with a plan. They are going to cycle to Paris and cheer her on! Starting on July 23rd in Utrecht and finishing on July 26 in Paris, the 550km trip will pass through Holland, Belgium, and France. Once in Paris they will soak up the atmosphere, enjoy the city and await the arrival of the Tour de France and of course the first ever edition of La Course.
Vos and her friends have invited 35 other women from around the world to join the Roadtrip to Paris. I am honored and so excited to have been selected and heading to Utrecht, Netherlands on July 21. Not only will I get to witness the first edition of La Course (and the end of the Tour de France..), but I will return to Chicago with training tips and advice from Marianne Vos herself—so make sure to pick my brain when I gets back!
Universal Sports will be airing La Course LIVE on July 27th.
