Racing officially started at the three one-day races, the Emakumeen Nafarroako Klasikoa, the Vuelta Ciclista a Navarra and Durango-Durango Emakumeen Saria, all won by road race world champion Annemiek van Vleuten (Mitchelton-Scott) in the Basque Country last weekend. 

The events offered the women's field an opportunity to test their legs after almost five months without racing, along with acting as an important dress rehearsal for the strict COVID-19 protocol and safety measures that events, teams and riders must adhere to during the upcoming rescheduled Women's WorldTour.
