Biehler Krush Pro Cycling ready to pop in virtual Women’s Tour
The ŠKODA V-Women’s Tour is the virtual version of the Women’s Tour, which is known worldwide as the biggest stage race on the cycling calendar for women after the Giro Rosa. Biehler Krush Pro Cycling is delighted to participate in this three-day spectacle.
Virtual racing cannot be compared to a normal road race, but it has become a fully-fledged discipline in recent years. Since the outbreak of the coronavirus in Western Europe, the riders of Biehler Krush Pro Cycling are no longer fighting side by side with the best riders in the world every week. This is now happening in virtual worlds. For example, the ŠKODA V-Women’s Tour is being run on the RGT platform.
Just like in a multi-day on the road, there is a battle for day profit and various leader’s jerseys. The first stage is one of 38.7 kilometers. The final stage of the 2014 edition will be used as the basis for the course, arriving in Bury St Edmunds.
A day later the queen stage of 35.4 kilometers takes place. The finish is on Burton Dassett (a 1.7 kilometer climb at 4.9% that was first climbed in 2019), and the slope must already be conquered twice. The final stage promises to be a lightning-fast criterion through the (virtual) streets of London. After 35 laps, the winner of the ŠKODA V-Women’s Tour is known. Find here more information about the stages.
On behalf of Biehler Krush Pro Cycling, Roos Hoogeboom, Laura van Regenmortel and Marissa Baks come into action. Three riders who have a lot of affinity with virtual races. Baks even finished second in the test event of the ŠKODA V-Women’s Tour last week. She is therefore looking forward to giving up three days.
“My second place in the test event gives me a lot of confidence for the ŠKODA V-Women’s Tour. Of course I would have preferred the real Women’s Tour, but unfortunately that is not possible this year. This is a wonderful alternative and I am very happy that we can drive here. Virtual racing is a discipline with a lot of potential. Of course it is different from racing on the road, but I really enjoy doing it. I am therefore looking forward to showing myself together with Roos and Laura. We are ready to go! ”
The ŠKODA V-Women’s Tour takes place from June 17-19. All stages start at 20:00 Dutch time. The competition is broadcast by BBC Sport , but can also be seen on Facebook and YouTube .
