Separate men's and women's four-day National Road Series (NRS) stage races will replace January's cancelled Tour Down Under men's and women's events, with both new races to be held from January 21-24 in and around Adelaide, Australia, the race organisation announced on Monday.

The stages of both events will be held on the same day on very similar routes, and both will include a reduced 'queen' stage 3 of the stage that normally decides the men's race, with a finish on Willunga Hill on Saturday, January 23.
