All my posts that a probably race previews in some way.

Vuelta CV Feminas 2023 Race Preview

Vuelta CV Feminas 2023 Race Preview

The Vuelta CV Feminas was the UCI season-opener in 2022 but with the return of the Australian calendar, we’ve already caught a glimpse of riders before heading to the Spanish coast. Indeed, in 2023 it’s not even the first Spanish race of the year after the Women Cycling Pro Costa de Almeria last weekend

Women’s Tour Down Under 2023 Race Preview

Women’s Tour Down Under 2023 Race Preview

Man, what a journey we’ve all experienced since the last Women’s Tour Down Under. One of the few races held in early 2020 before the Covid pandemic kicked off properly, Australia’s stringent rules since have prevented a return to international racing until now.

Women’s Chrono des Nations 2022 Race Preview

Women’s Chrono des Nations 2022 Race Preview

Women’s Tour de Romandie 2022 Race Preview

Women’s Tour de Romandie 2022 Race Preview

This is the first-ever Women’s Tour de Romandie and unlike its compatriot, the Tour de Suisse, it’s not a reborn event after a long gap either. It has done well to enter the Women’s WorldTour in its first edition, normally a race has to earn its spot after at least one race. As an end of season race, it looks quite tasty.

Women’s Giro dell’Emilia 2022 Race Preview

Women’s Giro dell’Emilia 2022 Race Preview

The women’s Giro dell’Emilia is starting to get itself a solid list of winners in its relatively short lifetime. In the previous 8 editions, it has been won almost exclusively by the best puncheurs in the women’s peloton. The course is kinda like Fleche Wallonne in that it finishes at the top of a very steep, solid climb. But it also takes place in Italy at the start of the Autumn and has absolutely no proceeding climbs to worry about.
