Madrid Challenge by La Vuelta

The Ceratizit Challenge (La Madrid Challenge by La Vuelta before 2020) is an elite women's professional bicycle race held in Spain, and has been part of the UCI Women's WorldTour since 2016.[1] It started as one-day road race in the centre of Madrid in 2015–2017 before a time-trial stage was added in 2018–2019. In 2020 a third day of racing was added and the name changed to the Ceratizit Challenge as the third stage will be held in an undisclosed location outside the borders of the Autonomous Community of Madrid.[2]
