It will begin in Australia at the end of January with the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race and draw to a close in China with the Tour of Guangxi in October.

Paris-Roubaix, making its first appearance later this year, will feature once more, while there is set to be a mid-season block of Spanish events.

The Itzulia Women (formerly the Donostia San Sebastian) will be a three-day stage race and takes place a few days before another new arrival, the Vuelta a Burgos Feminas.

The UCI also confirmed the cancellation of the Boels Ladies Tour in the Netherlands, which should have taken place on September 1-6 this year.
