The reVolta, the women's race of the Volta Ciclista a Catalunya, which starts and finishes in Sant Cugat del Vallès, will finally be held on Saturday 29 April 2023, as confirmed by the International Cycling Union.

The organising body had asked the RFEC and the UCI to move the race forward in the calendar one day before the date initially allocated, in order to better adapt to the calendar of international women's cycling events, and guarantee an outstanding participation in the race that has been held since 2021 in Sant Cugat del Vallès.

The reVolta will be for the first time, in its fourth edition, international category UCI (1.1), a fact that will mean a leap in quality both in the participation and in the hardness of the route, as well as in the diffusion and impact of the race, which for the third consecutive time will start and finish in the town of Sant Cugat del Vallès.

With the 1.1 category, the reVolta will be able to have a more prominent participation, with up to a maximum of 7 UCI Women World Teams, and without limitation of foreign teams in the UCI Women Continental Teams category.

The reVolta will be the first of the races that will be held in Spain in spring, since the most of them are mainly concentrated during the month of May, with the celebration of the Vuelta Femenina (from 1 to 7 May), the Itzulia Women (from 12 to 14 May), the Vuelta a Burgos (from 18 to 21 May) and the Vuelta Ciclista a Andalucía Ruta del Sol (from 31 May to 4 June), among others.

The list of winners of the reVolta in its three editions shines with the victories of the American Lauren Stephens (2018, in Barcelona), current EF Education-TIBCO-SVB rider, the Norwegian Movistar Team rider Katrine Aalerud (2021, in Sant Cugat) and the German Cofidis Women Team rider Clara Koppenburg, last May also in Sant Cugat.

On 29 April, the riders will have a new challenge with a reVolta that will once again offer a great cycling spectacle through the Catalan territory.
