WOMEN'S CYCLING BROUGHT TO YOU BY ORBEA
This year we saw the introduction of a women’s WorldTour. Replacing the former UCI Women Road World Cup, which was held from 1998 to 2015, the UCI Women’s WorldTour now serves as the leading series of races for professional women cyclists. And the racing sure did not disappoint.
We already recapped the inaugural series in numbers, videos and photos. We debated whether the Women’s WorldTour lived up to its expectations. And we doled out our 2016 Ella Awards.
Now, the UCI invites to relive the season’s best moments in this highlights video. Who’s excited for 2017?!
