UCI Announces WorldTeam and Pro Continental Teams for 2016

On the basis of the files received by the required deadlines and following their evaluation in collaboration with UCI-appointed auditor EY, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) announced the registration of the teams listed below in both the first and second divisions for the 2016 season today.

Teams registered as a UCI WorldTeam (1st division):

It should be noted that all the above were already in possession of UCI WorldTour licence for 2016 but were nonetheless required to meet the annual registration criteria. Seven other teams applying for a new UCI WorldTour licence will be heard by the Licence Commission in the coming weeks as part of the normal application process.

With regards to Astana Pro Team, the Licence Commission has rendered its decision after the team’s four-month review period during which it was monitored by the Institute of Sport Sciences of the University of Lausanne (ISSUL).

After reading the conclusions of ISSUL’s report, the Commission has found that the team complied with the measures required of it.
