The UCI announced Tuesday a revised 2020 Women’s WorldTour calendar, a replacement for plans that were halted due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. The top-tier series has retained 18 of the 22 events, now set to take place from August 1 to November 8, and includes a surprise addition of an inaugural women’s Paris-Roubaix.

"I do believe that [hosting a revised calendar] is crucial for our sport," Lappartient said in an online interview conference with international journalists on Tuesday.
