Women have been trying to make their way into the Tour de France for a very long time. And even once we did make it, we were pushed out again. This week, Selene interviews Marianne Martin - the winner of the very first female edition of the Tour de France. While the race was not as long as the men's, including only 18 stages and more rest days, it marked a significant milestone for women in cycling, and sport altogether. Marianne tells us what it took to get to that start line, and what it took to win. Turns out, a huge part of it was believing that she could. If there is one thing Marianne thinks got her that win, it was her ability to visualize herself in this race and further, winning this race. At a time when women's imagined possibilities were limited, visualizing that goal changed everything for Marianne. With a new re-model of the Tour de France Femmes starting on July 24th, it's important to recognize the challenges of getting to where we are today and the work that still needs to be done. ***Support The Series*** InsideTracker: Get 20% off at http://insidetracker.com/feisty Bonafide: Use code TITLE9 for 20% off your first purchase when you subscribe to any product at hellobonafide.com/title9 Velorosa: Use code FEISTY15 at checkout and receive 15% off an order of full-priced cycling wear at velorosacycling.com Previnex: Use code TITLE9 for 15% off your first order at https://www.previnex.com/ Life Time: Register for the 2022 Verizon New York City Triathlon at https://www.nyctri.com/
