The RideLondon Classique finished today with its final stage. After 3 days of racing, it probably came as no surprise that Lorena Wiebes won on the Embankment in London. Wiebes dominated the RideLondon Classique this year, winning all 3 stages on her way to the overall win.
This year’s Tour Series culminated with the Grand Final in Manchester. A short, simple 1km circuit with just 4 corners was the test for the riders. Strong winds and just enough elevation change meant that both races split up with the concertina effect into and out of the corners.

After last year’s epic Paris Roubaix Femmes, 2022’s edition was a much drier affair. The mud from last season was dust this year presenting a new challenge. The dust made the cobbles particularly slippy in the corners as tyres struggled for traction on the loose surface.
The RideLondon Classique came into being after the 2012 Olympics that were held in London. Looking for a legacy event that would ensure cycling remained important after the Games, a men’s and women’s race in London were created.

The Thüringen Ladies Tour has a long history in women’s cycling. First run in 1986, the race was one of the key races on the eastern side of the iron curtain. With the Peace Race a major event for male cyclists (and told well by Dieter Wiedemann in his book) the Thüringen Ladies Tour tried to emulate that for women.
Another relatively new race in Spain, the Vuelta a Burgos Feminas will have only its 3rd edition at UCI level in 2022. The race’s history goes back a little further though, raced as a national level Spanish race with some big names on the previous winners list. Anna van der Breggen won the head to head against Annemiek van Vleuten last year. The climb up to Lagunas de Neila on the last stage was the major battleground.
