The Tour de Paris has been the most important race in the calendar for the past 15 years, but the organisers have been unable to put the race on the calendar due to the recent tragedy of the Tour of Turkey.
The Tour will have a similar history to the Vuelta, which was dropped in 2016 after nearly a decade in the top-10.
The new race, called the Tour de Yorkshire, will replace the Vuada-Catalunya race which was also dropped after nearly 15 years in the race.
The event will run on Sunday, September 19th and will feature a number of stages, including the first two of the Grand Tour, a time trial on Monday and the final day of the race in Leeds on Tuesday.
The stage winner will then compete in the Tour De France on Thursday, October 1st and win the Tour.
This race will also include the Tour Divide stage, which is an intermediate sprint stage that will also be the opening stage of the overall.
