Tonight we're joined by Robin Farina and Jill Gass who are part of the first all women's team to compete in the Trois Etapes Tour.  The race is a fundraiser for World Bicycle Relief.  Competitors will cross many of the toughest climbs from the Tour de France during the three day event.  For the first time ever, on August 7-10, an all-female team will take on the Trois Etapes Tour. We will tackle some of the most grueling climbs of the Grand Tour in the French Pyrenees with a goal to mobilize women in rural Africa and promote women’s cycling around the world. 

Our team will be led by Evelyn Stevens of Specialized-lululemon. Team members include: 

  • Chrissie Wellington, Four-time Ironman World Champion, legend in the endurance world, and a key player for Le Tour Entier and La Course;
  • Robin Farina, Professional cyclist and President of the Women’s Cycling Association, a nonprofit that advocates for the development of women’s cycling equitably and sustainably;
