The men's Tour de France is over but the women's event, known as the Tour de France Femmes, is underway now. The cycling race was held once in 1955, then again from 1984 through 1989, before finally being revived this year. American Marianne Martin won the first official version, in 1984, when it was an 18-day race held at the same time as the men's tour.

The 2022 version of the women's race runs over eight days and the final two stages, both mountain climbs, are happening this weekend. It began in Paris at the end of the men's race and encompasses hilly, flat and mountain stages over a 639-mile course, ending at the summit of La Planche des Belles Filles ski area. A total of 144 racers from 24 teams are competing and the leader going into the weekend is Marianne Vos of the Netherlands. The tour's official website lists the route, the winners of each stage and other useful information.

Streaming service Peacock, which is owned by NBC, is carrying the Tour de France Femmes live. Here's what you need to know.
