Reshuffling the Giro Rosa and for that matter, the Women’s Tour of Thuringa to June would likely provide media oxygen. It also has the potential to provide more of a gap between the two races as many can’t get to both events now.

But then when do you have the Emakumeen Euskal Bira race currently held mid-June – a highly respected race among the peloton and women’s cycling fans. And if you’re reshuffling, what happens to the Tour of Chonming Island World Cup mid-May? What race do you choose to have overshadowed by the Tour because these athletes can’t not race for three weeks during July? This is the feedback I received when I asked around.
