The nine-leg series started out on 31 March with the legendary Gent-Wevelgem junior race in Belgium. The winner was the outstanding American rider, Quinn Simmons who became World Champion at the end of the year, and later on he signed a contract for World Tour, jumping over the U23 category.

The second event was the „Hell of the North”, the king of one-day races, the Paris-Roubaix in mid-April. The Dutch Hidde van Veenendaal claimed the victory in France.

This prestigious junior stage race was followed by the Junior Course de la Paix where the French Hugo Toumire was the first to cross the finish line, thus overshadowing his second place behind van Veenendaal in the Roubaix, and gaining the first position in the overall classification.
