Entertainment Jeannie Longo points to a big problem
Cycling-Tour de France 2022 (F/E2): The stage and the yellow jersey for your
© Panoramic Vos-Jumbo-Visma-Tdff-25722 this Monday, the Dutch Marianne Vos (Jumbo-Visma) Won in the sprint the 2nd stage of the Tour de France women, in Provins. A success that allows him to take the yellow jersey. Marianne Vos, as obvious. Second Sunday on the Champs-Elysées, The Dutchman this time won the 2nd stage of the Tour de France women at the Sprint and seizes the yellow jersey at the same time.
The 6th stage on Friday was relatively spared, but the collective fall in the day before was enough to trigger a big controversy on the Tour de France women . It can be summed up by the murderous sentence of Pierre Salviac, via Twitter. "Are girls ready for a competition of this level?" Asked the former rugby commentator on France TV.
For Jeannie Longo, Salviac is partially right. The legend of female cycling, triple laureate of the Tour in the 1980s, some competitors are not necessarily at the level for such an ordeal. "In my opinion, there are some too many teams, teams who do not have the best international level with young people who rub without room for maneuver, says Longo in an interview with AFP. They barely pass with the Place for the handlebars, so necessarily it affects everywhere. Some may have a lack of attention too. Women who go into a peloton on the ground as Monday, it is not normal. In my opinion, 144 runners At the start, that's a lot. But the falls are still coming. "
Tour de France (D): Van vleuten queen of the large loop
lurking in the shadow of other champions in the first part of this female Tour de France 2022, Annemiek Van Vleuten patiently waited for its time. Victorious of the Giro at the beginning of the month and naturally favorite of this large loop, The Movistar runner had obviously checked the last two stages of the route to seize the yellow jersey and no longer let go of the top of the Super Beautiful girls board this Sunday, place of arrival of the 8th and last chapter. with an average speed of 15.
Female cycling lowered
Falls also arrive on the male Tour de France, it is very important to remember. And do not pour into an ordinary sexism. "When men fall on the Tour, they are courageous heroes, and women would be because they don't know how to ride?", annoyed Marion Rousse, the director of the Tour.
Female cycling was sufficiently lowered in the 1980s, especially when Marc Madiot launched to Jeannie Longo, live on television, that a "woman on a bicycle is ugly". While the scene has been running on social networks for a few days, Longo has forgiven the FDJ manager. "He evolved, he was a young man of the peloton. I could quote others. They were a few not to appreciate particularly that I was put forward and that women do the same things as them. 'were road giants and we arrived in small dwarfs from the macadam, as I called us at the time. "
"Seeing a woman dance is very pretty, seeing a woman on a bicycle is ugly, I say it!"
Return to the end of the 80s, when the world champion Jeannie Longo defended the place of women in the bike against the misogyny of cycling runners.

Lancashire's Big Brother contestants ranked from best to worst based on how much drama they gave us .
