Women's cycling is not spared either race postponements or cancellations at this start of the 2021 season due to the coronavirus pandemic and the third wave that hits several European countries.

Two of the main women's races in Spain, the Setmana Ciclista Valenciana, scheduled for February 20-23, and the new Vuelta al País Vasco Femenina (May 14-16) have been canceled and have disappeared from the UCI calendar for 2021 due to the pandemic. If the Vuelta CV Féminas is kept on the calendar, scheduled for February 7.

Both events were scheduled to host great figures from the women's peloton and in the case of the Valencian event it marks the start of the season for many riders before the first event of the UCI Women's World Tour, the Strade Bianche, after the cancellation of the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Race.

In this way, two Spanish events are dropped from the women's calendar in which, in addition to the Vuelta CV Féminas, the City of Eibar Grand Prix (May 9), the Emakumeen Naffaroako Women's Elite Classics (May 11), the Durango-Durango (18 May), the Vuelta a Burgos Féminas (May 20-23) and the Ceratizit Challenge by La Vuelta (September 3-5). Women's cycling is also not spared the cancellations caused by the coronavirus.
