On the uci website we can find the whole calendar for the 2014 season. Here's the link. I won't write down about every race (might prepare some previews before the major races later on) but i decided to write a little about changes.

The first new race in calendar is Grote Prijs Andre Noyelle which will be held on 16.03.2014. The race will be a part of the bigger event including races for pro's (last edition was won by Jerome Baugnies), juniors and novices. As an amateur event the race was won by some big names like Devolder or Meersman. Looks like a solid addition to calendar.

Another addition to the calendar is Memorial Dimitar Yankov, the first uci event for juniors in Bulgaria, organized by Bulgarian Cycling Union. The race will be held between 15th and 17th may. Another addition, also located on the Balkans, will be Belgrade Trophy Milan Panic. Looks like it's going to be first edition in uci calendar of the race called Days of Belgarde which had some nice history (43 editions!) as an amateur event. It'a a weekend event, played between 6th and 7th of July. Going further we are still in the Balkans region since the next addition to the juniors calendar is Sofia Varna, four day event in Bulgaria either. Those three races in South-East Europe is a nice develop to the calendar, i'm hoping that some of the big names will show up and maybe it will be a chance to the locals to improve and show their talent.

And that's it. Rest of the calendar is basically the same as in 2013 with minor changes of the dates (like moving Le Trophée Centre Morbihan to may, previously held on august) or category change like Tour de l'Abitibi which is promoted to 2.Ncup category again.
