It is one of the biggest races of the season. The crowds stand four deep at the side of the road, the prize money matches the men’s equivalent and the best riders in the world arrive in the best form. The OVO Energy Women’s Tour is a sight to behold. Even more so this year, as CANYON//SRAM debut Rapha’s striking new Women’s 100 limited edition kit.
In a rare full-kit switch out for the women’s peloton, the team are launching the collection as part of Rapha’s aim to encourage more women to ride bikes. As our recent campaign states, riding is the answer, and we are committed to breaking down barriers of entry for anyone interesting in cycling, with the Rapha Women’s 100 at the forefront.
Below we present a selection of photos from the first few stages of the race, and introduce some of the inspiring women who make up the CANYON//SRAM team.
