Alé BTC Ljubljana at Tour de l’Ardèche and European Championships


​A new stage race for the Alé BTC Ljubljana team, which from tomorrow, Wednesday 8th September, until Tuesday 14th September, will take part in the 19th Tour Cycliste Féminin International de l’Ardèche, in France. On the programme there are 7 stages with a total of 817 kilometres and a route that also features some very demanding climbs. A race that already last year gave a lot of satisfaction to the Italian team that expects to take advantage of the excellent moment of form of its girls to try to enrich their seasonal trophy case.
