The UCI Women’s WorldTour is the world’s leading series of races for professional women cyclists.

Replacing the former UCI Women Road World Cup, which was held from 1998 to 2015, the UCI Women’s WorldTour was established to accommodate the fast growth of women’s cycling and accompany it into the future.

The varied calendar (see below) includes spring classics early in the season, exciting stage races held worldwide and monument races that are often attached to men’s UCI WorldTour events. 

51 days of racing

23 races

7 stage races

16 one-day races

10 countries

3 continents

14 races broadcast live

At least the top 15 UCI Women’s Teams are invited to each event, with some organisers choosing to increase the size of the peloton by offering a greater number of teams the chance to race (24 teams maximum)

As well as battling for victories in the individual races, the women look to position themselves in one or more of the UCI Women’s WorldTour rankings: individual, Under-23 and teams.
