It's not the UCI in Geneva - although they might coordinate races organised by local Federations.
Have a look at http://www.uciworldtour.com/templates/BUILTIN-NOFRAMES/Template3/layout.asp?MenuId=MTYwMTY&LangId=1

I can remember it from the 50s and a certain Oscar Saville later to become Sir Jimmy

I was at the finish of the 1953 tour won by Ian Steel and my BLRC club ( West London Road Club) used to run The Tour of the Chilterns which was a classic event.

Believe Oscar was a nickname and not his birth name.
