What’s new?The big change is the World Championships are in August. This post-Tour de France slot means many stars coming out of the Tour, men and women, will be in peak shape to contest the races in Glasgow. In reaction to this some races move to fill the gap normally occupied in September by the worlds. Among the races in September is the 1.1 Classica Andorra Pirineus, a new race in Andorra.
La Vuelta Femenina, the official women’s Tour of Spain, goes to May and stretches to a week and the women’s calendar in general gets more races. The RideLondon Classique stays on the calendar with guarantees of live TV.
The season begins again in Australia with the Tour Down Under and Cadel Evans Road Races are back. For the men, the Euro season now starts with the Clàssica Comunitat Valenciana which has gone from a 1.2 up to a 1.1. There’s a one day race in Muscat ahead of the Tour of Oman making it twice as lucrative to make the journey for UCI points. The Deutschland Tour gets an extra day. Sadly the only high level race in Colombia, the Tour Colombia 2.1, isn’t making a post-pandemic comeback, the organisers are short of funds.
There are several more new races and as ever this is the calendar but reality can mean postponements and cancellations.
