The first edition of the CIC International Women’s Tour of the Pyrenees was a turning point for professional women’s cycling.
Indeed, for many decades, women’s cycling was very poorly represented and women who practised the sport professionally had no official status. Created in 2019, the AFCC has succeeded in bringing women’s cycling to the attention of all and adding a feminine and cultural approach to the sport.
With the support of its partners in the world of cycling and professional sport, the AFCC has succeeded in ensuring that women for whom cycle racing is a profession are now fully recognised and have official status as professional female cyclists.
