Three notable events on the UCI WorldTour calendar had their licenses renewed for three more years, the UCI announced in a press release on Thursday.

The Amstel Gold Race, Ronde van Vlaanderen (Tour of Flanders), and the Tour de Romandie will all continue through 2016 after being granted a three-year license.

The Amstel Gold Race was first held in 1966, Flanders began in 1913, and Romandie started in 1947. Romandie is a six-day race in Switzerland, while Amstel (Netherlands) and Flanders (Belgium) are one-day classics.

All three races are held in April.
