The International Road Cycling Challenge was a one-off, one-day bicycle race that served as one of six Brazilian events in the year-long 2015 UCI America Tour and acted as a test event for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games.[1] The race was rated 1.2 and was part of the "Aquece Rio" series of events.[2] The race was run over most of the Olympic course. Most of the riders represented countries instead of trade teams; however, there were several, mainly Brazilian, trade teams in the race. The race was won by French cyclist Alexis Vuillermoz.[3]
