It has been almost a month since the route for the men's Vuelta a España was unveiled by organisers Unipublic, though no information is yet forthcoming about the women's edition of the race, known this year as La Vuelta Femenina, despite it running in early May, almost four months before the men's event in late August.

Similarly, RCS presented the route for the men's Giro d'Italia last October, but the Giro d'Italia Donne – separately organised by PMG Sport and Starlight – have yet to announce anything at all. In 2022, the race route was only announced in mid-March, only three months ahead of the race.
