The inaugural Exergy Tour women’s cycling race kicks off Thursday. It promises to be a major event for Idaho and for women’s professional cycling.
Tour organizers at a press conference Wednesday afternoon introduced some of the athletes. Dave Towle, a professional race announcer, put it this way, “If you look on the timeline of American cycling, this’ll be one of the most significant weeks we’ve ever had.”
In a question to a rider he described it as, “this is really your Tour de ’France.”
