The late-season revised Women's WorldTour has made it to the end, with the Madrid Challenge by La Vuelta being held from November 6-8 in Spain. The three-day race, where stages were confirmed just days ago, marks the final round of the top-tier series currently led by Lizzie Deignan (Trek-Segafredo).

With the season halted for five months due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, the revised calendar was put in place to salvage at least some of the cycling season between August and November.
