HAIKOU, Jan. 14 (Xinhua) -- The 2020 Tour of Hainan cycling race will start in south China's coastal city Danzhou on Feb. 23 and run through to March 1, said the organizers at a press conference on Tuesday.

The eight-day tour will consist of eight stages and cover a total of 1,190.7 kilometers. Cyclists will pass though 15 cities and counties in Hainan, with both the start and the finish in Danzhou.

Twenty teams have confirmed their participation in the race, comprising one UCI international team, seven UCI professional teams and 12 UCI intercontinental teams.

The tour is the first race of the UCI Professional Series in China after reform of the competition system by the Union Cycliste Internationale.

"The development of the tour has attracted the world's attention and brought more sports fans to Hainan, as the island province speeds up construction of its sports tourism demonstration zone," said Xu Xianghong, an official with the Hainan provincial bureau of tourism, culture, radio, television, and sports.
