UCI renews three World Tour stage licences

The International Cycling Union (UCI) has renewed UCI World Tour licences for three events.

Netherlands’ Amstel Gold Race, Belgium’s Tour of Flanders and Switzerland’s Tour of Romandy were all granted three-year licences running until 2016.

The Amstel Gold Race – which took place on April 14 earlier this year – is the only Netherlands stop off, while the Tour of Flanders is one of six Belgium races in this year’s calendar.

Switzerland’s Tour of Romandy took place on April 23-28 this year, and shares the calendar with the Tour of Switzerland stage.
