Simac Ladies Tour
The 23rd edition of the Simac Ladies Tour, formerly known as the Boels Ladies Tour, will return to the Women's WorldTour and is set to take place from August 24-29.
The 2020 edition of the stage race was cancelled due to COVID-19. The event was initially scheduled for August but was moved to the first week of September as part of the revised calendar. Organisers had to cancel the event altogether after local municipalities would not grant permits for the six-day event due to health restrictions.
As a Women's WorldTour race all nine top-tier teams will participate in this year's race including SD Worx, Alè BTC Ljubljana, Canyon-SRAM, FDJ Nouvelle-Aquitaine Futuroscope, Team BikeExchange, Liv Racing, Movistar Team Women, Team DSM and Trek-Segafredo.

It is the biggest stage race in the Netherlands, joining the Women’s WorldTour in 2017, and it is heading into its 23rd edition.
