The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) has revealed the men's and women's WorldTour calendars for 2020. The dates of certain events had to be modified due to the Olympic Games of Tokyo 2020.

The Olympic Games -which will be held between the 24th of July and the 9th of August- will have an effect on the calendars for the upcoming year. "The Tour de France will begin one week before its traditional date, and the Tour de Pologne will take place in July instead of August as in previous years," said the UCI in a press release.

"Similarly, the Prudential RideLondon Surrey Classic will be organised slightly later than usual, after the Olympic Games. Concerning the UCI Women's WorldTour calendar, all the events organised from the month of May onwards will take place one week earlier, enabling the best riders to participate and also represent their country at the Olympic Games."

The UCI WorldTour will have 37 events, starting in the second half of January in Australia and finishing at the end of October in China. The Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey will not be part of the WorldTour calendar because of the lack of interest from the teams and the Vuelta a España will include one extra day due to its Grand Depart in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

The Women's WorldTour will comprise 22 events, starting at the beginning of February in Australia and finishing in China in October. The Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race Women will be part of the WorldTour and the Prudential RideLondon Classique won't be part of it due to its change of date, which makes it coincide with the Ladies Tour of Norway "a well-established event in the leading series of women's professional road cycling which offers television coverage that fully complies with the organisers' specifications."
