In 2019, for the first time there will be a women’s Gravel and Tar cycling race to accompany the men’s event.

Like the men’s ‘Classic’ event the La Femme will comprise five gravel sectors making up approximately 40km and another 76 km on the tarmac.

The race starts at Feilding's Manchester Square, and will finish at Memorial Park in Palmerston North. The course map can be found here.

The prize purse is equal to the Classic, the total being in excess of NZ$15K, including over NZ$9K for general (individual) classification and NZ$6K for teams classification.

The women’s event will be unique, not just because the prize purse is equal to the men’s race, but because it will be one of the hardest women’s race on the UCI road cycling calendar.
