The Women's team time trial of the 2014 UCI Road World Championships took place in and around Ponferrada, Spain on 21 September 2014. The course of the race was 36.15 km (22.46 mi) with the start and finish in Ponferrada.[2][3] It was the third edition of the team time trial event for UCI Women's Teams. Specialized–lululemon was the defending champion, having won both previous editions in 2012 and 2013.

Specialized–lululemon once again won the world title, finishing over a minute clear of their closest competitors, Orica–AIS. The bronze medal went to Astana BePink, after Rabo–Liv were severely delayed because of an incident that caused several members of the team to hit the ground.
