The Tour de Romandie Féminin (TDRF) was first held in 2022 as part of the 75th anniversary celebrations for the men's Tour de Romandie. The event, which has been part the UCI Women's WorldTour ever since its first edition, is a major international sporting event, attracting the biggest teams and elite women's cyclists from around the world.
Broadcast live on Swiss TV channels and worldwide, it presents a fantastic opportunity to showcase everything that French-speaking Switzerland has to offer and provides an important boost for the region's economy, tourism industry and local communities. Plus, it serves up some fascinating sporting action set against spectacular scenery for the many fans lining the route and watching on TV. For the media, cycling fans, sponsors and cycling teams alike, the TDRF is a key event in the international cycling calendar.
The TDRF also plays an important role in promoting women's cycling for both amateur and professional athletes by delivering a challenging professional course and increasing awareness of the sport and its big names among the general public and young people in particular.
