The organisers of the 2020 Ceratizit Madrid Challenge by La Vuelta have confirmed that the three-day race will go ahead with a brand new opening stage in Toledo on November 6. The race marks the finale of the Women's WorldTour late-season revised calendar that formed a replacement to the original season shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In its three first editions (2015, 2016 and 2017), the Madrid Challenge consisted of a circuit race stage through Madrid’s city centre. In 2018 and 2019, organisers added a time trial stage that took place in the locality of Boadilla del Monte.
