Con un breve e asciutto comunicato (verrebe quasi da dire imbarazzato), l’UCI ha confermato oggi che, a seguito della riammissione della Katusha ad opera del TAS, saranno 19 le squadre del World Tour 2013. La decisione è stata presa dal Consiglio del Ciclismo Professionistico.
UCI announces 19 registered UCI ProTeams in the 2013 season
The UCI today announced that exceptionally there are 19 registered UCI ProTeams in the 2013 season. The decision comes further to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruling of 15 February 2013 which upheld the application of Katusha Management SA to be registered as a UCI ProTeam for the season 2013.
The decision to have 19 as opposed to 18 Teams was taken by the Professional Cycling Council today.
