The opening of the official transfer window was on August 1 and teams are beginning to announce their returning and departing riders along with their new hires for 2022.

Women have two tiers - UCI Continental and UCI WorldTeams - with the latter being the highest level in women's cycling. In 2021, there were nine top-tier women's teams that included Alé BTC Ljubljana, Canyon-SRAM, FDJ Nouvelle-Aquitaine Futuroscope, Liv Racing, Movistar Team Women, Team BikeExchange, Team DSM, Team SD Worx and Trek-Segafredo.

There will be space for 15 WorldTeams in 2022 and teams that have expressed an interest in applying for a top-tier team licence are Jumbo-Visma, Tibco-Silicon Valley Bank and Rally Cycling. Two more teams Uno-X or Cofidis, that are set to launch in 2022, are now able to apply for a top-tier licence upon their foundation due to the amendment to Article 2.013.034 bis.
