Racing is already underway for the road season, even though it may feel like some riders are still cleaning the mud off of their cyclocross bikes.

The excitement for this year will likely be a slow build, as well, given that it’s such a long season. The first race on the WorldTour calendar is the Strade Bianchi on March 5, and it won’t conclude until mid-October with the Tour of Guangxi.

Teams such as Movistar and Trek-Segafredo have been setting the tone for the season at the early races, such as Setmana Ciclista Valenciana last week. Then, there are the new teams added to the Women’s WorldTour, such as Human Powered Health (formerly Rally Cycling)—not only are they new to the WorldTour, but they are also relatively new to racing in Europe in general.

But with such a long season and with these new teams, which riders can we expect to see out front? Of course, the most exciting thing about the women’s pro cycling peloton recently is its depth of talent. Consider the Olympics, where the relatively unknown Anna Kiesenhofer won gold , shocking the cycling world (and half of the riders in the race). And as more teams ante up and create solid WorldTour programs for women, more riders have the support and backing to be able to show up full time on the bike.

Here, we’re sharing eight riders we expect to be podium regulars this season. But, of course, expect some surprises as well.
