The Tour of Turkey will be held 10-15 October this year and a similar time next year, according to the calendar. It's a WT race and it would have been "big" news if it had been dropped without even yet being ridden once as a WT race!

Believe only 2 WT teams for Turkey - They'll need to better next year to keep their WT status.

Thanks! Wasn't aware of the news that it would actually be held. I can imagine an all-Kazakh Astana team and a team of Trek stagiares lead by Julien Bernard or something. Could be another Caja Rural playground.

And one of those 2 teams said they would go if they could find riders willing to go to Turkey but at the time (February) not a single rider on the squad was willing

Vuelta a Aragón is coming back also in May 2018.

Spanish cycling (slowly) regenerating itself at race and team level.

Will be a long journey to build back the infrastructure we had in the 90's and 2000's that allowed us to produce the great champions we mourn today.

Cheers

With the creation of the new 2.1 race the Vuelta a Colombia will be downgraded to national event next year.

When I woke up and saw the yellow jersey that I had left by my bed the night before, I asked myself: "what are you doing in Merckx's bedroom?" I couldn't believe it - Bernard Thevenet

Aragón is the coming region. It's been quiet since Escartín, but three of the biggest young prospects - Castrillo, Samitier and Barceló - are all Aragonese. And the Aramón ski resorts have been willingly paying for the Vuelta regularly in recent years, although strangely not at Cerler which is the most established of the resorts.

Nice news. It's good to see spanish cycling reviving somewhat with Murias and Burgos BH becoming pro-continental too.

We have some informations about the brand new Adriatica Ionica Race https://www.adriaticaionicarace.com/gara/

The first edition will start from Venice and end in Ljubjana after five days (and a passage in Austria).
In the second edition will be added Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia.
In the third also Macedonia, Albania and Greece with a finish in Athens after ten days.

Seems a very big project, they already have signed for TV coverage in 54 countries.

Excellent news. The calendar is in sore need of more cross-border races and maybe this will even kickstart pro racing in the Balkans. There should be plenty of companies in the tourism sector that would interested in sponsoring this.

I see that now. As long as they don't revive Giro di Padania I'm fine with it.
