The UCI makes the new World Tour 2020 calendar official
Great laps, cobblestone, walls and laps for a week in the same month of competition.
The UCI (International Cycling Union) has just made public through a statement, the new competition schedule for the 2020 season.
The new 2020 cycling calendar that if everything goes well will start on August 1 with the Strade Bianche and will last until November 8. When the Vuelta a España drops the curtain on a unique season in cycling history.
3 months of real heart attack in which practically all the events of the World Tour calendar will be concentrated.
Recall that when the season was temporarily suspended Hardly 5 of the 36 competitions that made up the theoretical calendar of the maximum international competition had been played.
A challenge for the multi-colored snake. Runners can and should start preparing for 3 months of absolute madness that will test their mental and physical endurance. Just over 90 days to see how the best riders in the world are able to restructure an entire season.
The good thing about all this? That we will be before a Unique opportunity to see riders like Alejandro Valverde or Peter Sagan in a position to contest the victory in races that apparently did not enter their calendar. Chris Froome already dreams of his fifth Tour de France but why not dream big in a possible and historic triple crown?
We will see how everything evolves and the problems that can arise logistically for all teams.
