The UCI has announced its proposed calendar for the international women's and men's Road WorldTour. Parts of it - such as the Grand Tours - have already been discussed publicly, but this is the first time that a full outline - with dates - has been released. With the release, the UCI pointed out that this is subject to the lifting of restrictions by nations. Both the women's and men's schedules will begin August 1st. The UCI also previously announced August 20-23 as the new dates for national championships.
