Pro cyclist and two-time French National Time Trial champion, Audrey Cordon-Ragot captained the Wiggle High5 Pro Women’s Cycling Team going into last week’s OVO Energy Women’s Tour. After taking the Queen of the Mountains jersey on day one, she dominated the hill climbs to retain it throughout the 5-stage women’s cycling race and be crowned overall Queen of the Mountains.
I caught up with Audrey in London where the team were relaxing by the Wiggle Team Bus an hour ahead of the final stage, stage 5, of The Women’s Tour. The crit race. A fast, flat 10 laps of the 6.2km circuit and a stark comparison to the hilly Derbyshire route of the previous day’s Stage 4 (arguably the toughest stage with more than 2000m of climbing.)
