Organisers of the Ladies Tour of Norway announced Monday plans to move ahead with the long-awaited 'Battle of the North' in 2022. The event is tentatively planned to take place across six stages through Denmark, Norway and Sweden from August 16-21.

It has been reduced from its original 10-day proposal after organisers of the Postnord UCI WWT Vårgårda WestSweden TTT and Road Race opted not to be part of the new stage race event. With the two Vårgårda races also held in August, organisers could not fit a 10-day race into the UCI International Calendar.
