There are 23 events on the 2019 UCI Women’s WorldTour which started on March 9 with Strade Bianche.
Women’s racing has historically been very difficult to follow. Not least because the events have rarely been televised. Thankfully, that is starting to change. Obsessively following Twitter hashtags for live updates is giving way to actual race coverage. The racing, as it has been for years, remains incredible from a fans perspective.
Broadcasting of the women’s racing is catching up with the men’s, quite literally during at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad.
With established Canadian pros like Leah Kirchmann, who already has her first podium of 2019 from Omloop ven het Hageland, and Karol-Ann Canuel being joined by newcomers like Marie-Soleil Blais, this is a fantastic year to tune in to as much racing as possible.
Below is a list of the UCI Women’s WorldTour calendar and how you can tune in to each race throughout the year. Check back regularly, broadcasts are often announced last minute. Where fans could watch the women’s edition of Omloop Het Niewsblad was only announced the day before the race.
