ASO (Amaury Sports Organization): Allow female professional cycling teams to race the Tour de France
Support us on July 27
Jul 23, 2014 — Dear Friends and Petitioner-signers of the Tour de France,
As you know, we have achieved an historic victory in creating a women's race at the Tour de France this year. La Course by Tour de France will air live from the streets of Paris on Sunday, July 27th. If all 98,000 of you tune in, the tv and web ratings will help secure the future of our sport! Please know that your viewership counts as a vote for progress, just as your signature did. Let's make women's pro cycling shine this Sunday!

Also, we are thrilled to announce all four of us of Le Tour Entier will be participating in the race as either athletes or ambassadors. Emma Pooley (Lotto Belisol), Marianne Vos (Rabobank-Liv) & I (Kathryn Bertine, Wiggle Honda) will be racing, and Chrissie Wellington will be the ambassador for our big day.
Thank you for making this dream a reality, it was your voices and Change.org that made the difference.
