Hello and Happy International Women’s Day!

This week at VeloNews, we would like to draw your attention to the stories of women’s cycling – the races, the profiles of the cyclists, the calls for change and the victories already won. Please follow these stories and more as we focus on women in sport.

A preview of what to expect BikeNews during International Women’s Week:

Sadhbh O’Shea explains how maternity leave is changing the face of women’s cycling and interviews Canyon-SRAM pro Kasia Niewiadoma who says women’s cycling needs more U23 events.

Guest columnist Matilda Price brings up a very good point – if mountain biking has equal TV coverage, pay and rides, can’t road cycling have those things too?

From the dirt, I catch up with ultra-endurance cyclist Lael Wilcox to discuss how she achieved her dream of racing and promote projects focused on women. Then we experience the Dusty Bandita, the world’s first all-female gravel race.

We hear a chorus of voices within women’s racing – Alison Tetrick shares her past and present relationship with cycling via a love letter, Kate Courtney reflects on Lea Davison’s friendship and career, and Audrey Cordon Ragot evokes the next women’s Tour de France.

Women’s cycling is something to recognize – and normalize – every day. But, it’s also something to celebrate in a major way.

Happy International Women’s Day.
