World Cup calendar 2007

10 Events for 2007 series

From Australia to Germany, via Europe and Canada

The UCI has released the 2007 elite women's calendar. On the list are 10 World Cup races. The series kicks off in Australia with the Geelong race, which is in the Melbourne area and will take place on 03 March. Although a feature for the past two years, there will not be a New Zealand leg in 2007, there will be an elite race, category 1.1 which will follow the New Zealand Tour. So, after Geelong, the riders will not compete in the World Cup series again until April 08, where they will tackle the Tour of Flanders. An addition to the calendar is the Ronde van Drenthe a week after Flanders. This race takes on World Cup status after 9 editions as a three day tour. 

The Ronde van Drenthe is followed by the Fleche Wallone and a month later by the Tour de Berne in Switzerland in May. The Castilla y Leon (Spain) race which was a World Cup in 2007 does not run in 2007. 

From Berne, there is another month's gap until the La Coupe de Monde Cycliste Feminine de Montreal. Round seven and eight are the Scandinavian races - the Swedish road race, Open de Suede and the team time trial in Denmark, the Ladies Golden Hour.

Another break and the penultimate race of the series takes place in Plouay, France and then the finale in Nürnberg a fortnight later. The Rotterdam Tour, which has previously been a World Cup will be a 1.1 category event in 2007.

Nicole Cooke won the 2006 series, with her team, Univega, taking the team title.
