La Vuelta Femenina won't be moved to a later date despite some protests

La Vuelta Femenina was considering moving the 2024 edition to June, but will start at its rather regular term on April 29. The Spanish AS published this news.

Since the announcement of the Women's World Tour, La Vuelta Femenina for women has been scheduled for April 29 to May 5, but several teams have reportedly requested that the stage race be moved on the calendar. Within the organization there was talk about June (in the week of Women's Tour) and even, late in the season, in October.

According to AS sources, all those plans have now been scrapped and so La Vuelta Femenina will normally be held at the end of April. One of the main reasons for this has to do with live TV coverage, which many (foreign) channels cannot guarantee at other times of the year.

Last season, the overall victory in La Vuelta Femenina went to Annemiek van Vleuten, after an exciting battle with compatriot Demi Vollering.
