The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) 2012 WorldTour calendar includes races that were formerly in the UCI’s top-tier ProTour calendar, as well as other major races such as the Grand Tours and one-day classics.

The Tour Down Under in Australia kicks off the 2012 calendar on January 17, 2012, and the final race of the year is the Tour of Beijing, China, October 10-14, 2012.

Traditional season-ending classic Il Lombardia, Italy, will take place on the earlier date of September 29, 2012.

Riders taking part in WorldTour events are awarded points for placing highly. The points are used to compile a WorldTour Ranking, published by the UCI on the Monday following the conclusion of each counting event.
