LOS ANGELES (BRAIN) — The 2016 Amgen Tour of California will stage a 4-day/4-stage women's race May 19-22. The race will be part of the first-ever UCI Women's WorldTour, a global series announced this week at the World Championships in Richmond, Va.

The WWT will be a combination of one-day and multi-day stage races and will run for 30 days from March to October across Europe, China and the United States including the recently formed one-day races La Course by Le Tour de France and La Madrid Challenge by La Vuelta. Multi-day events will include the Aviva Women's Tour of Great-Britain and the historical Giro d'Italia Internazionale Femminile. The Amgen Tour of California Women's Race, sponsored by SRAM, will be the first WWT event held on U.S. soil and one of only two U.S. races included in the WWT's inaugural year (the Philadelphia International Cycling Classic being the other).
