Shirin van Anrooij of team Trek-Segafredo won the ‘Best Young Rider Classification’ at the inaugural Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift. Liv is a major partner of the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift, sponsoring the White Jersey.
“As a brand working to elevate women in the sport of cycling, Liv was proud to sponsor the White Jersey at the inaugural Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift. Watching all of the professional racers compete in this historic event was truly amazing,” said Bonnie Tu, Liv founder and Giant Group chairperson. “Today we celebrate Shirin’s Best Young Rider Classification win which symbolizes the future of cycling and aligns with our mission to inspire young girls to get on a bike and pursue their own cycling dreams.”
Van Anrooij rode to the White Jersey win in stage seven over a tough course where she finished 17th overall and gained more than a five-minute lead over the second contender for the White Jersey, Mischa Bredewold of team Parkhotel Valkenburg. Van Anrooij ultimately held onto the win on the final stage eight.
Sponsoring the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift is a natural extension of the Liv brand.
