The Women’s Tour, Britain’s first international level stage race for women in the UK, has selected Strava as the title sponsor of its Queen of the Mountains jersey competition.
The inaugural event is one of a select few stage races for women and features a Queen of the Mountains jersey competition. With 96 set to race, the Strava orange polka-dot jersey will be at the heart of the competition and presented to the classification leader at the end of each stage..
“We are pleased to welcome Strava to The Women’s Tour and thank them for their support of women’s sport”, says Mick Bennett, The Women’s Tour race director.
The Women’s Tour, which will take place 7th – 11th May 2014, promises to draw significant international attention. Each stage of The Women’s Tour will feature two Strava Queen of the Mountains climbs where the peloton will compete for points awarded at each summit.
“The opportunity to be a partner of the inaugural Women’s Tour and help raise awareness for women’s cycling globally is something that Strava is very excited to be a part of. The Queen of the Mountains classification was a natural choice for us and we look forward to seeing some of the world’s best female cyclists in Strava’s signature polka-dot orange later this year”, says Gareth Nettleton, Strava’s Director of International Marketing.
