With the WorldTour starting in 2019, the UCI is aiming to attract more top-tier international athletes into the sport.
The UCI will unveil its 2019 target for international sport in the next few months.
It has already been revealed that two of the top 20 UCI countries will be bringing top-level athletes to UCI events this year, with the UCIs participation in the World Championship in Rio de Janeiro and the UCi Junior World Championships in Paris, in addition to the upcoming World Cup in 2020.
The number of UCI athletes coming to events in the first half of the year is estimated to be around 30%.
The UCI has already committed to bringing in a number of athletes from its existing member countries in the coming years.
The first batch of UCIs top-end international athletes will arrive in 2019 as part of the new UCI Womens Cycling programme.
This is expected to be followed by a second wave of UCAs top-class athletes in the 2020-21 season.
The Women Cycling programme will have an overall target of bringing in at least 100 international athletes by the start of the 2019-20 season.
The UCAs WorldTour team will also begin a WorldTour in 2020, which is expected at the start in 2021.
The 2020 UCI Worlds will take place from January 20-24 in Paris.
