In the coronavirus adapted calendar, the three grand tours will be crammed into 71 days with monuments Liege-Bastogne-Liege and the Tour of Flanders run during the Giro d'Italia in October and Paris Roubaix during the Vuelta a Espana in November.

The Tirreno Adriatico stage race is scheduled during the Tour de France.

To avoid a clash with the Tour finishing in Paris 20 September, it appears the individual time trial at the World Championships has moved to the 23rd with the road races that weekend. Fleche Wallone is scheduled for 29 September, the same day BinckBank Tour begins.

Stage races on the alternative calendar including Binckbank Tour, Tirreno-Adriatico, Tour of Poland and the Criterium du Dauphine last no longer than six days.

AS reports the UCI will present a finalised calendar next week.

It also notes that everything still rests on the constantly evolving health crisis and the restrictions imposed by different nations.

For example, France's ban on mass events until September will affect the Criterium du Dauphine currently scheduled two weeks before the already announced Tour de France dates (August 29 to September 20).

Proposed major race dates:

Milan-San Remo: 8 August
Criterium du Dauphine: 12-16 August
Tour de France: 29 August - 20 September
Tirreno-Adriatico: 8-14 September
Giro d'Italia: 3 - 25 October
Liege-Bastogne-Liege: 4 October
Amstel Gold: 10 October
Tour of Flanders: 18 October
Vuelta a Esapana: 20 October - 8 November
Paris-Roubaix - 1 November
