The Spring Classics have come to and end and the women's peloton now turns its attention to the stage racing season beginning with the Festival Elsy Jacobs held from April 30 to May 2 in Luxembourg. 

Lisa Brennauer (Ceratizit-WNT) won the last edition held in 2019, when it was a 2.1-ranked event, ahead of Demi Vollering (then Parkhotel Valkenburg) and Lizzy Banks (Ceratizit-WNT). The race was cancelled last year but returns this year as part of the 2.Pro series, a step below the Women’s WorldTour.
