Who is racing?

The ŠKODA V-Women’s Tour will feature 18 teams including many of the world’s top names that you’ve seen racing in the Women’s Tour. Each team will field three riders who will race in every stage, competing for stage victories and overall honours.

Find out more information on the participating teams here.

How does it work?

The ŠKODA V-Women’s Tour  is a virtual stage race, so you will still see a winner of each stage, and an overall leader.  We’ve even got a virtual leaders jersey that you will see being worn by our race leader on Stages Two and Three.

Just as in the real world Women’s Tour, a riders cumulative time across the three stages will be their overall time.  There are also no time bonuses, so creating time gaps over your rivals will be crucial.

There is one crucial difference, each team do have the ability to make one replacement during the three stages, in case of injury or illness, or if a rider suffers a technical issues that stops them taking part.  Any replacement rider on days two or three will be automatically placed at the back of the General Classification standings, with a 20″ time penalty.

You’ll be able to find the results on the website post-stage, including who is the leading British Rider and the Best Young Rider in the ŠKODA V-Women’s Tour.
