The Tour of the Alps is taking a step up to the UCI Pro Series in 2020 and will be held from the 20th to the 24th of April.

Less than six months after the 43rd edition of the race -which was won by Team Ineos' Pavel Sivakov- the race has been confirmed as part of the new UCI Pro Series that will be replacing the HC tier, from 2020.

"We are grateful to the International Cycling Union and the Italian Cycling Federation for having backed our bid for the UCI Pro Series," said GS Alto Garda President Giacomo Santini. "This achievement is a reward for the Tour of the Alps' success, but also for the 40-year history of the Giro del Trentino, that laid the basis for our new project.

"Just a few years ago, the future of our race was under threat. The new territorial partnership among Tirol, Südtirol and Trentino, under the aegis of Euregio, gave us a new boost, and the opportunity to think bigger. Our gratitude goes to them, to all our partners and to our big organizational team, for making this step possible and launching towards the future with even greater ambition."

The 44th edition of the Tour of the Alps will be held between the 20th and the 24th of April of 2020, and on the 19th of April will be the preliminary operations and the team's presentation.
