What’s New?
2024 is an Olympic Games year so they’re the big additions for next year and there are some knock-on effects like the Route d’Occitanie shrinking to two days because the French police are being given as much time off before the Olympics as possible so that they can assist for the games and this means less support for this event in June; worse the Ventoux Dénivelé Challenge is cancelled for the year.

Otherwise there are some smaller additions here and there, a new 1.1 race in Belgium and so on, nothing remarkable. Arguably the biggest news is the return of the Tour Colombia 2.1, last held in 2020. The rise of women’s cycling continues, for example the often season-opening Trofeo Mallorca races for the men now get women’s versions and they’re even earlier in mid-January.

    Stupid Olympics. I wonder how much cachet the Olympics will have for road cycling in the future. With the reduction of the field sizes, and the very small teams, even for the top nations, will it just look like a junior kermesse? No-one has a hope of being able to control the race.

      It’s odd but everyone says the games are too big and so adding, say, 300 athletes for both road races swells the games. Having 90 riders and some of them not likely to last long in the race means we could quickly be down to 40 riders with a long way to go and things could get wild. But I suspect it’ll be prestigious because the hard circuit means the big names will be duking it out in the streets of Paris and this time for themselves with little team support.

      No problem – stay home and don’t watch on TV, OK? I’ll be there in-person, finding it interesting to watch pros race for nothing more than a gold medal. I always laugh at the “nobody cares about the Olympic Games” naysayers…who always have plenty to say and write about them…and probably spend plenty of time watching ’em on TV as well?
