Canada's six woman team is all set to begin the Tour de l'Aude in France, which gets under way on Friday with a prologue, followed by nine stages. The race concludes on May 26th. The National Team is represented by Nicole Demars and Gina Grain, both of the Victory Brewing / Amoroso's Cycling team, Anne Samplonius, Katy St. Laurent, the defending National Road Champion, and Carrie Tuck and Erinne Willock, both of the Rona - Esker Cycling Team.

Four of the girls took part in a small race in the region of Eauze on May 11, after arriving in Toulouse on the morning of May 10. Given the opportunity to stretch their legs and get a ride in before the big stage race, Canada's riders performed well. Gina Grain won the race. Erinne Willock finished 3rd. Anne Samplonius finished 5th and Carrie Tuck finished 7th.
