The 2024 Vuelta Femenina gets underway with a reasonably flat team time trial in Valencia. An out-and-back course along the coast will see teams get hit by strong winds, making it not a simple opening stage to get through successfully. It will prove tough to keep the powerhouses connected to their GC riders whilst also ensuring a strong time is achieved. The likes of Canyon SRAM are already struggling with riders sick and one short going into this stage. For them, it will be damage limitation and trying their best to keep Kasia Niewiadoma in touch with the GC battle.
