UCI World Tour 2021 Calendar: dates, locations, and reports

The 2021 UCI World Tour is a series of races that include thirty-three road cycling events throughout the 2021 cycling season. The UCI WorldTour calendar is composed of the most prestigious cycling races and reunites the former UCI ProTour and the historical calendars.

The UCI World Tour 2021 final stage of the Tour of Guangxi on 19 October. After a very unusual and tough 2020 for cycling, and all sport, Landa’s comments neatly sum up the main question of the 2021 Men Elite road racing season: how far can cycling’s ‘new kids on the block’ go in a much more ‘standard’ race programme?

The most successful Tour de France sprinter ever, 35-year-old Cavendish’s goal is to regain momentum after several tough seasons blighted by illness. But the sport’s younger fastmen will be equally determined to prevent Cavendish returning to his former level of success: they intend to ensure their ‘new normality’ remains in place.
