‘Demands that don’t match their level’ – Tour des Pyrénées director blames riders over cancellation

June 12, 2023

The director of the CIC-Tour Feminin International des Pyrénées has criticised the participating riders after the event was cancelled by the UCI ahead of Sunday’s final stage due to safety concerns.

After Friday’s opening stage was blighted by a series of dangerous incidents, including oncoming traffic on the race route and parked cars blocking roads, the peloton held a protest on stage 2, effectively neutralising the race until the final climb up Hautacam, where Marta Cavalli (FDJ-Suez) took victory and the leader’s jersey.
