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.

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 honors.

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.
