Pau - Pau 121 km
We're experimenting again. This year's version of La Course is a an Ardennes type classic after having been a Champs Elysees sprint and a high mountain race in its previous iterations. Several laps of the men's TT course, very early in the morning to avoid too many people being exposed to the horrors of women's cycling.
Early bird : Anna van der Breggen
She can't get punked two years in a row, can she. A weeks Giroing probably peaked her form for a race on her preferred terrain.
