With the Tour de France now scheduled for August 29-September 20, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) has confirmed that other races, including the Road World Championships in Switzerland, the Giro d'Italia, and Vuelta a España will all follow on from the Grande Boucle, with the 2020 post-COVID season likely to run into late November.

The UCI said it is also working to redesign the women's WorldTour race calendar and hopes to confirm new versions of the entire UCI International Calendar (men’s and women’s races across all cycling disciplines) on May 15 at the latest.
