Title:

Press release - Registration of UCI ProTeams and UCI Professional Continental Teams for the 2011 Season

Date:

02.11.2010

Description:

On the basis of the dossiers received by the International Cycling Union and their evaluation in collaboration with the auditors Ernst & Young, the UCI will register the teams listed below in either the first or second divisions for the 2011 season.

It should be noted that to date, only first division teams with continuing licences which meet the required sporting, ethical, financial and administrative criteria as well as teams seeking to be registered in the second division which have provided dossiers considered to be in compliance, have been registered by the UCI. The lists below should thus be considered provisional.

The dossiers of other teams - and in particular those of new teams - will be sent to the Licence Commission. On 20 November, the UCI will communicate the decision of the Licence Commission on awarding the remaining first division licences and the registration of the other teams in the second division.
The final decisions of the Licence Commission (for teams that have appealed or that have been required to make their dossiers comply) will be communicated on 10 December.

It can be noted that this year the evaluation of teams has placed particular emphasis on the sporting criterion. The sporting hierarchy is calculated on the basis of the team members for the coming year and therefore reflects the sporting value of the teams’ 2011 squads.

The teams’ sporting values are calculated using results obtained in 2009 and 2010 by the 15 best riders in their 2011 squads, taking into account all the events on all the circuits of the UCI International Calendar. In addition, the calculation of a team’s sporting value takes into consideration the collective value of the team based on placings in team classifications of stage races on the UCI World Calendar and HC events on UCI Continental Circuits during 2010.

The sporting criterion is crucial to obtaining UCI ProTeam status. In accordance with Article 2.15.011b of UCI Regulations, the 15 top teams in the hierarchy will receive (or will keep) a first division licence (on the condition, of course, that they also fulfil the ethical, financial and administrative criteria). Teams ranked 16th to 20th will be evaluated by the Licence Commission, which will decide which of them will have access to the first division (the maximum number of UCI ProTeams is fixed at 18). Teams ranked lower than 20th place are considered not to have fulfilled the sporting criterion.
