First details of Women’s Tour

Details about the first stage of the 2015 Friends Life Women’s Tour have been announced.

The event, which came through Northamptonshire last year, will start off where the inaugural edition finished as Bury St Edmunds and Suffolk welcome the opening stage of the race on June 17 with 100 of the world’s top female cyclists in action.

Details of where stages two to five will take place have yet to unveiled but it is hoped Northamptonshire will be included after it successfully hosted a stage from Oundle to Northampton last year, with thousands of people lining the route.
