Title:

Mountain Bike: The list of UCI teams for 2013

Date:

07.02.2013

Description:

The International Cycling Union (UCI) has today published the list of UCI Mountain Bike Teams for 2013, including those that will race with the UCI ELITE Mountain Bike label.

The globalisation of the mountain bike discipline continues, with 27 countries registering at least one team, compared with 24 last year. The new nations with a UCI Mountain Bike Team are Brazil, Denmark and Finland.

Of the 127 teams registered for the 2013 season, 15 endurance (XCO) teams and 15 gravity (DH) teams will obtain UCI ELITE Mountain Bike status. This higher tier of mountain bike teams will benefit from advantages such as free entry to all races on the UCI Mountain Bike International Calendar, including the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup events. In return, they are obliged to enter at least one rider in all rounds of the 2013 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup presented by Shimano.

Invitations to obtain UCI ELITE Mountain Bike status were issued to the top teams of a special ranking, which was established on the basis of the individual UCI points won in 2012 by the best riders of the 2013 teams.

These teams have until March 1st to confirm their status “Elite” and pay the corresponding fee.
