Superweek refers to the International Cycling Series / Superweek PRO TOUR bicycle races which were held primarily in Wisconsin and sometimes in Illinois during the month of July. It was among the largest events in the world. In 2008, Superweek celebrated its 40th year, with over 7,000 entries over 17 days of racing. Superweek traditionally ended on the last day of the Tour de France.

Many teams, both domestic and international, sent representatives to the series on a regular basis; such examples include Colavita-Sutter Homes, Toyota-United, Team Milram, Jelly Belly, Colombian National Team, Rock Racing, Hong Kong Cycling Team, and many more.

2012 was the final year of the famed Superweek Cycling Series.
