In 2022, we witnessed the momentous revival of a women’s Tour de France with Annemiek van Vleuten winning the yellow jersey in 33 years. The event was reported as a smashing success with millions of people across 190 countries tuning in to watch eight action-packed days of racing. The Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift became an instant flagship race on the women’s WorldTour calendar, and on Sunday, July 23, 154 riders will roll from the start line in Clermont-Ferrand for the much-anticipated second edition.

With public watch parties happening across the country, Liv, a women’s bike manufacturer and sponsor of the young rider jersey at the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift, hopes to keep the momentum going.

“Strong race viewership has been cited as an integral metric to increase sponsorship of women’s cycling events. Last year’s inaugural race reported global viewership numbers that surpassed many races in the men’s World Tour circuit, and Liv is determined to keep these numbers strong,” Liv states. 

To do so, Liv is hosting fun and free opportunities for fans to watch the race. 

“Attending the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift in France last year was a dream of mine, and it reinforced the importance of race opportunities for the growth of women’s cycling,” said Bonnie Tu, Liv Founder and Giant Group chairperson. “If we can inspire one more girl or woman into cycling by creating more opportunities for her to watch the women’s race, we’ve done our part.”
