UCI WorldTour 2020 events

UCI WorldTour events are top-level races for professional cyclists.

The events form a series, with riders competing for the overall title as well as individual wins. The UCI Women’s WorldTour was launched in 2016, replacing the original World Cup and therefore adding stage races to the calendar.

The 2020 editions of the series were largely disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic that affected much of Europe in March.

The men’s series was able to run five events – Tour Down Under, Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race, UAE Tour, Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Paris-Nice – before all races were postponed. The UCI has since published a revised calendar that will see a reduced number of 22 events run between August 1 and November 10.

The women’s series was only able to run one event before the coronavirus lockdown, with the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race taking place in January. The rearranged calendar will include 15 events from August 1 to November 10.
