THE 2020 PROJECT
"YES, I CAN!"
COVID-19: my project depends on whether the Grand Tours will actually take place, because even today (23.04), the TdF is already in doubt at the end of August. Don't worry: I already have a plan B for 2020 if I have to postpone the full version of "Yes, I can!". Stay tuned!
Ride every km of the 3 Grand Tours:
"Because even a woman can do it!"
After achieving excellent results in the ultracycling discipline, I need other challenges and since the professional women do not have the 3 Grand Tours 2020 (Giro d'Italia, Tour de France and La Vuelta) as their male colleagues, but a very short version of the Italian stage race (10 days) and a single day of competition in France and in Spain, I said to myself: "Why not ride all the 3 Grand Tours a day earlier of the pros?".
THE PROJECT IN PILLS
Total distance: 10'295 km
Number of countries covered by the project: 7:
- Giro d'Italia: Hungary, Italy
- Tour de France: France
- La Vuelta: Netherlands, Spain, France, Portugal
I ride 1 day* ahead of the male pro peleton.
People can ride with me**. It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or an experienced cyclist. Not even if you want to ride for a few kilometers or several stages. Management of participants list - without any constraint - through my Telegram group (Damaceleste.com chat).
Fight women stereotypes and inequality.
Inspire other women to push beyond what they, or others, think are their boundaries.
* For logistical reasons (transfer to Budapest and lack of flights to Sicily), I will start the Giro d’Italia 2 days earlier in Hungary.
** Helmet is mandatory. I'm not responsible in the event of an accident: be sure to be insured individually. Each will provide their own logistics for return, assistance and supplies.
