The 2022 Women’s Tour marks the sole top-tier event held in June and the last major stage race ahead of the double-headers Giro d’Italia Donne and Tour de France Femmes in July. 

Nearly all of the highest-level teams will be on the start line as some riders look to fine-tune their form while others aim for stage wins and overall victory at the six-day race held from June 6-11 in the UK.
