About the Women’s Prestige Cycling Series
goal of the Women’s Prestige Cycling Series is to highlight women’s
racing by giving them a spotlight that they don’t have to share with the
men. The Series grew out of meetings that began in Minnesota in 2003 at
the first Yoplait Women’s Cycling Summit Conference hosted at the Nature
Valley Grand Prix. The Summits, now sponsored by Yoplait Nouriche, take
place twice a year: at the Nature Valley Grand Prix in June and at the
Interbike trade show in the Fall.
