New 2020 WorldTour calendar: Where the Pros compete during Corona Season

(c) Stefan Rachow

On August 1 the 2020 WorldTour season will be continued with Strade Bianche. All races of the new calendar are available here at a glance.

Starting August 1, pros will resume racing. The 2020 WorldTour season will be continued with Strade Bianche, a neo-classic on the white streets of Tuscany. The new WorldTour calendar also lists all other races that are to take place.

Five WordTour races have been held so far in the 2020 season, the last of which was Paris-Nice in mid-March, that, however, never reached the final destination Nice. Due to official measures the race was shortened by one day. The winner was German pro rider Maximilian Schachmann from team BORA-hansgrohe.

With Strade Bianche part two of the 2020 WorldTour season begins

The restart of the WorldTour season will take place in Italy on August 1: The neo-classic Strade Bianche is the first race of the new calendar. Team Alpecin-Fenix with their top rider Mathieu van der Poel will also be present in Italy.

Following the race on the “white roads of Tuscany” UCI plans to hold a further 21 events, including all three Grand Tours.

October 25 – three highlights in one day

A special day will be October 25, if everything goes as planned. On this last October Sunday Paris-Roubaix, the final stage of Giro d’Italia with an individual time trial to Milan and the 6th stage of the Tour of Spain to Tourmalet will be held.

However, it is not the governing body of cycling, UCI, that decide whether the races will really take place, but the authorities of the respective countries. Two North American races – Quebec and Montreal – might still be cancelled. The Tour of Guanxi in China is not yet certain to take place this season either. If it was cancelled it would suffer the same fate as eight other events.

Both German WT races will not take place in 2020

Among them is the German classic Eschborn-Frankfurt. The last remaining German WorldTour race, the Cyclassics in Hamburg, was officially cancelled on July 20, 2020.
