In a rather pathetic move, the UCI has given the women the early start time today. This somehow implies that the men's U23 race is more prestigeous than the elite women's?! Sterling work by the UCI, just as we have come to expect from the A-holes of Aigle.
Anyway, don't be fooled. This will be an every bit as good a race as the men's if last years edition is anything to go by. If you're not familiar with the principal characters, check out Monty's excellent preview here.
The women do 9 laps on the 16,6 km course, a total of 124 km, starting at 09:00 CEST
