Happy Monday everyone! Don't be sad that you're back at work after the Christmas period. You may wish you were still in bed with your toes thoroughly rolled in down duvet, but we all have to move into 2015 with grace. And that's why, we assume, the Friends Life Women's Tour 2015 have released the promo video below during the first week of January – to ensure we all get through it with smiles upon our faces.

It's certainly got us excited for the race, which will take place from Wednesday 17th to Sunday 21st June 2015. After all the excitement afforded by last years competition, with a blistering win from Marianne Vos, we're expecting that this summer's action will be just as compelling. Further announcements about venues and the race route will be made during January and February.
