The UCI have announced details of the Women’s WorldTour which will start next season and will replace the former UCI Women’s Road World Cup, which was held from 1998 to 2015.

The calendar includes spring classics early in the season, stage races held worldwide and monument races that are often attached to men’s UCI WorldTour events. The culmination is the UCI Road World Championships held towards the end of the season.

It will consist of the following:

  • 35 days of racing
  • 4 stage races
  • 13 one-day races
  • 9 countries
  • 8 races broadcast live

The top 20 UCI Women’s Teams will be invited to each event, with some organisers choosing to increase the size of the peloton by offering a greater number of teams the chance to race.
