In 2016 the Aviva Women’s Tour will be part of the UCI’s exciting new calendar of races that will make up the brand new UCI Women’s WorldTour, earmarked by UCI President Brian Cookson as “a major step forward for women’s cycling.”

You’ll have seen the recent announcement that the 2016 Aviva Women’s Tour will be a part of the brand new calendar that replaces the Women’s World Cup, with the third edition of the race taking place from Wednesday 15 to Sunday 19 June, and you’ll have also seen the new logo for the Series.

So what are the other events that will be joining the Aviva Women’s Tour as a part of the Women’s WorldTour?
In total there are 17 races taking place over 35-days of racing in nine countries.  Four of the events are stage races, with the Tour of Chongming Island in China, Amgen Tour of California and Giro d’Italia joining the Aviva Women’s Tour on the schedule, making it the only stage race in Britain and one of just two in Europe on the schedule.

Among the 13 single-day events is a second British event at the end of July in the RideLondon Grand Prix, while the capitals of France and Spain also host events.
