The Madrid Challenge by La Vuelta women's race has been extended by a day to three days and will bring the curtain down the postponed 15-race women's WorldTour calendar on November 8, the same day the men's Vuelta a España ends in Madrid.

The city of Madrid and the surrounding autonomous community have hosted every edition of the race since its creation in 2015. It started as a circuit race in Madrid, with a time trial in Boadilla del Monte added in 2018.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
