Backed by multiple world champion Marianne Vos, the UCI has declared July 20-27 to be Women’s Cycling Week. It’s the week leading up to La Course, the women’s race on the Champs-Élysées on the final day of the Tour de France and will include a programme of events aiming to raise the profile of women’s cycling.
The first-ever female UCI vice-president Tracey Gaudry, has established her intention to “put women’s cycling in the position it deserves”, six weeks after being appointed.
Tracey Gaudry, chief executive officer of the Amy Gillett Foundation charity, has been unanimously elected as president of the Oceania Cycling Confederation for a four-year term. She will also become the first female member of the UCI’s Management Committee since Germany’s Sylvia Schenk, who served on it from 2000 to 2005.
