The Netherlands Tour of Drenthe is to be included as part of the UCI women's world cup from 2007. The new race may become the second Dutch world cup race on the calendar if Autumn's Rotterdam Tour is included.
The world cup series for 2007 will feature Geelong, the Tour of Flanders, Fleche Wallonne, the Tour de Berne, GP Montreal, GP Plouay and the Rund um die Nürnberger Altstadt. There are three more races to be added to the final calendar.
Organiser Femmy van Issum of Drenthe hopes that the women's event will remain in its April position so that the Women's race can run concurrently with the men's Tour of Drenthe.
