Chantal Blaak’s (Boels-Dolmans) lead is growing, gaining over a minute on the best of the rest.

    Love that there’s two guys kissing her on the podium. Has that always been a thing?

      There are a few races where there are podium boys at the women’s events like La Course. Personally, I don’t like it. It’s still heteronormative and objectification. I think cycling should get rid of pretty podium boys and girls altogether and do what they do in tennis and soccer: have kids get a chance to award the flowers and meet their idols.

        Fair enough! If I was a pro I’d like a tick box “If you win, do you want the following: Kiss on the cheek from male/female/trans (pls circle), or give the opportunity for kids to pass over the awards” *shrug*

    I’m finding it difficult to find video of the womens’ races other than the occasional 6-minute highlight package. Is there anyone uploading full races to youtube?
