Things are moving fast on the calls for women to be able to race the Tour de France. Right now the petition has got 57,236 signatures, but it’s moving really quickly (and if you haven’t signed it yet, please do) – and Kathryn Bertine, who set up the petition, has started a twitter campaign to ask the Tour organisers if they can meet to discuss it. You can do that with this handy twitter thingummy, or of course, compose one of your own. And follow the campaign twitter, @LeTourEntier, for all the campaign news.
Our friend Thomas Warren has written a really good blog about the issue too, taking in Brian Cookson’s campaign for the UCI presidency, the UCI’s rules for women’s races, and much more – I highly recommend you click through and read it. And if you haven’t already read Dan’s blog about it right here on this site, please do that too, and have conversations with us in the comments.
