The Women’s WorldTour is set to lose an event in 2025, with RideLondon Classique organisers stating on Friday that due to a UCI-imposed shift of dates for next year's race, they will have to cancel it.

After the UCI revealed the 2025 WWT calendar this morning, there were only minor changes to dates, most of which just saw races return to their original slots after moving in 2024 due to the Paris Olympics. However, RideLondon was pushed back a week later from the weekend of May 23-25 to May 30 to June 1.
