La Madrid Challenge by La Vuelta brought to a close the inaugural Women’s WorldTour, as the finale of a 17-round series that started in March with Strade Bianche. The one-day race was held in conjunction with stage 21 of the Vuelta a Espana and once again brought together the top riders in the women’s professional peloton.
Megan Guarnier (Boels-Dolmans) had all but sealed the overall victory of the Women’s WorldTour ahead of the final round. She was leading with 946 points while Leah Kirchmann (Liv-Plantur) has 604 and Lizzie Armitstead has 545, and those top-three results remained the same following the race in Madrid, making her the first woman to win the new series.
