A quick preview look at the Ceratizit Festival Elsy Jacobs 2024

Ally Wollaston Festival Elsy Jacobs 2023 Podium

The Festival Elsy Jacobs is the biggest women’s race in Luxembourg and has been a highlight on the UCI women’s elite cycle racing calendar since 2008. This race has evolved significantly over the years, upgrading from a UCI 1.1 category race between 2009 and 2011 to a 2.1 category stage race between 2012-2023. Named in honour of Elsy Jacobs, the trailblazing cyclist who clinched the inaugural 1958 World Championships Women’s road race in 1958 at Reims in France and also maintained the women’s Hour record from 1958 to 1972, the race has a rich heritage of promoting women’s cycling.

In a significant shift for 2024, the traditional stage race format will be transformed into two one-day races on consecutive days, April 27th in Garnich and April 28th in Luxembourg City, promising a fresh challenge for riders. It’s largely as a result of La Vuelta Femenina changing dates and overlapping the race now. Its roll of honour includes the likes of Ally Wollaston, Marta Bastianelli, Emma Norsgaard, Lisa Brennauer, Kasia Niewiadoma, Anna van der Breggen, and Marianne Vos.
