The Tour of America Premier Women’s Cycling Race is a multi-stage elite women’s competition envisioned to become the women’s counterpart to the Tour de France. Our goal is to hold the inaugural race in the summer of 2019 in the northeast region of North America. It will be a five-stage race in its first year and part of the UCI Women’s WorldTour upon sanctioning by USA Cycling and the UCI (Cycling’s international federation).
In later years, the race will grow to up to 12 stages and rotate to different regions of the United States and Canada.
