The manager of Continental women's team Lifeplus-Wahoo has said it's a "shame" there will be no British squads at the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift this year, after his team did not receive an invite. 

Lifeplus-Wahoo were present at both the inaugural race in 2022 and last year's edition, but were missed off organiser ASO's invite list for this August.
