French participation to the Ladies Tour of Qatar (2-5 February) [ar] [fr]

While the eight edition of the Ladies Tour of Qatar took place from February 2rd to Friday 5th, the French Ambassador, H.E. Eric Chevallier, invited the French Women’s Cycling Team, their staff, sponsors, and the members of Amaury Sport Organization –one of the companies in charge of this race, for a reception in the French Residence.
During this event, the French Ambassador cheered on the French champions taking part in this key contest. On the eve of the final stage, the French racing cyclists turned out to be enthusiastic. It was all the more strategic for them to ride their bikes on the roads where the next World Championships will be held.
Cycling is high on the Qatari sports agenda in 2016. After the Ladies Tour of Qatar, immediately followed by the Men’s Tour of Qatar, from February 8th to 12th, Qatar is to host the 2016 edition of the Road World Championships, from October 9th to 16th. Around 1000 racers coming from 75 countries will compete in this race throughout Qatar, the first ever Middle East country to stage it. As a result, Doha is expected to host around 30 000 fans from all around the world.
