I didn't even know there was a women's UCI Santos Tour...until WiggleHigh5's YouTube channel posted some 3-minute summary videos, and VeloNews just posted a story about who won the GC.


Yup. First women's UCI tour race is already over for the year, and they didn't even try to let anyone know it was happening. Nada on even UCIChannel.

I agree... what pisses me off the most is that I usually think the racing is better. The teams as a whole aren't as strong and the riders strength levels vary more than men's cycling so it usually comes down to quite a few strong riders, breaking away and going hard... as opposed to armies of teams controlling the pace. I find it to be more exciting.

I've been up on it the whole time.

Who relies on the UCI for anything now a days? Haven't you learned your lesson like 100x by now?

Maybe you should sub to Orica as well. But in general, stop going to the UCI for anything, they're useless.

For a while UCIChannel at least had sizeable if-not full women's races for streaming/replay on their channel if you VPN tunneled into the EU.

Not sure for how long they were doing it though.



Then they started talking about more exposure for the women's UCI...and all that vanished overnight.
