With the 2020 Women’s Tour now just six months away, here’s a look at what’s already know about the seventh edition of Britain’s most prestigious women’s race.

Further details will be revealed in the New Year, but here’s a look at what’s already known about the prestigious UCI Women’s WorldTour event.

Race dates

The 2020 Women’s Tour will take place from Monday 8 to Saturday 13 June 2020, as confirmed by the UCI in June 2019.

Stages

Although the race route will be unveiled in early 2020, details of two of the Women’s Tour’s six stages are already public.

STAGE TBA: OXFORDSHIRE, DATE TBA

Following on from a brilliantly-supported stage in the county back in June, Oxfordshire will feature in the 2020 route – year two of a three-year deal to host the race.

STAGE SIX: HAVERHILL TO FELIXSTOWE, SUFFOLK, SATURDAY 13 JUNE

The world’s top cyclists will return to Suffolk as the county hosts the final stage between Haverhill and Felixstowe on Saturday 13 June.

It will be the first time that Suffolk, which aims to be England’s most active county, has hosted the final stage of The Women’s Tour since 2014.
