The UCI Continental Circuits are road bicycle racing competitions contested under the auspices of the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI). The five circuits (one each representing Europe, Africa, Oceania, Asia, and the Americas) are inferior to the UCI ProTour. Both the ProTour and the circuits comprise a series of races in which various cycling teams compete regularly. The circuits were designed by UCI to export cycle racing beyond the European continent, where it is most popular and where the three Grand Tour stage races are held.
