Esteban Chaves will rejoin the peloton in February at the Vuelta a la Valenciana in Spain.
The Colombian has taken an eight-month break from racing after he was diagnosed with Epstein-Barr virus this season.
Chaves, 28, last raced at the Giro d’Italia in June, where won a stage before dramatically falling out of contention after stage nine.
Winning stage six to Mount Etna, Chaves was in the top-three until stage 10 when he lost 25 minutes after being dropped on the first climb of the day.
The Mitchelton-Scott rider underwent numerous tests and even had minor surgery for a chronic sinus problem.
His team announced in August that Chaves would not race the Vuelta a España, which was won by his 26-year-old team-mate Simon Yates.
At the time, Chaves said: “It’s been a hard period.
“Since 2012 I haven’t been off the bike this long.
“In this sport, we are used to answers and results coming fast and this process was slow and the time can make you crazy.”
He returned to training in August, with Mitchelton-Scott doctor Manuel Rodriguez saying his progress and symptoms would be closely monitored.
Epstein-Barr virus is a common virus that causes infectious mononucleosis, or glandular fever.
Dimension Data’s Mark Cavendish took an indefinite break from racing after being diagnosed with the virus for a second time this summer.
Cavendish is also due to return to racing early next year at the Vuelta a San Juan along with Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Fernando Gaviria (UAE Team Emirates).
