The startlist for the 2023 Tour de France Femmes is now out, with 22 teams announcing their 7 riders to tackle the major stage race. This year’s Tour de France Femmes gets underway on Sunday in Clermont-Ferrand with a possible sprint stage with a late climb just to spoil any attempt to keep it an easy stage.

The Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift 2023 begins on 23 July in Clermont-Ferrand. It comprises eight stages and finishes with an individual time trial in Pau on 30 July. 

A race preview can be found here.

Tour de France Femmes Startlist Stats

Nationalities

The country with the most riders will be the Netherlands with 27 riders. France itself sits in 2nd place with 21 riders taking part in their home race. 19 riders from Italy also mark a strong contingent. For Anglophone fans, Australia is next with 13 riders ahead of 10 British riders.

Ages

There is a wide range of ages in this year’s Tour de France Femmes. 2 riders were born in 1982, with Rachey Neylan of Cofidis the oldest rider ahead of last year’s winner Annemiek van Vleuten. At the other end of the scale, there is just 1 rider born in 2004, Lifeplus Wahoo’s Babette van der Wolf. The Dutch rider is the youngest rider in this year’s race by almost a full year to Camille Fahy.

Lidl-Trek brings the oldest average team to the Tour de France Femmes. Their 7 riders average out as 31 years, 4 months and 17 days old. Almost collectively a month older than Cofidis who have the aforementioned Rachel Neylan to bring up their average. The youngest team is dsm-firmenich at 23 years, 1 month and 7 days. They will have the likes of Charlotte Kool and Pfeiffer Georgi so youth doesn’t mean they won’t be contenders either!
