VAISON-LA-ROMAINE, France (AP) - Swatting the air with the back of his hand, Tour de France director Christian Prudhomme says he has nothing to say to a group of female cyclists hoping to one day ride in the sport's greatest race.

Before the start of Tuesday's 16th stage, Prudhomme brushed off a question about an online letter and petition urging Tour organizers to let women compete next year.

Prudhomme says "we are saying nothing for the moment."

Olympic gold medalist and road race world champion Marianne Vos and British Olympian Emma Pooley are among the cyclists behind the petition.
