Men’s and women’s professional road cycling: 46 teams have submitted required documents for registration in 2021

Nov 5, 2020, 17:00 PM

Women’s first division road teams and men’s first and second division road teams wishing to be registered for the 2021 season must submit their registration file to the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI). The UCI then assesses, with external financial auditor EY, whether the teams are in compliance with the UCI Regulations.

In accordance with its Regulations, which as an exception have been adapted to take into account the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, the UCI is today publishing the list of teams that have submitted  a registration file containing all the required documentation as per articles 2.13.087, 2.15.069bis and 2.16.014bis, by 1 November.

There are 45 candidate teams for registration: 8 women’s teams and 18 men’s teams wishing respectively to renew their UCI Women’s WorldTeam and UCI WorldTeam status, and 19 men’s teams applying for registration as a UCI ProTeam in 2021.

Moreover, in compliance with article 2.13.032 of the UCI Regulations, one women’s team has applied for a UCI Women’s WorldTeam licence and for registration as a UCI Women’s WorldTeam. This would bring the number of UCI Women’s WorldTeams to 9 for the 2021 season.

Decisions on the allocation or renewal of UCI WorldTour and UCI Women’s WorldTour licences are the exclusive responsibility of the Licence Commission (art. 2.13.031, 2.15.201).

Finally, the UCI would like to specify that teams that do not appear on this list still have the possibility to finalise their applications before the end of the registration procedure, which will be determined by the completion of the Licence Commission hearings, anticipated for December.
