The COVID-19 pandemic might have interrupted the majority of the women's road season but the teams are still making plans for the 2021 season after the opening of the official transfer window on August 1.

Women have two tiers - UCI Continental and UCI WorldTeams - with the latter being the highest level in women's cycling.
