The procedure of awarding UCI ProTour licenses for teams has been opened.
The deadline for sending applications has been fixed at 20th July 2009.
The candidatesâ€™ files will be analyzed by the Licenses Commission, which will announce its decisions during September for the best files.
The regulations and the application file can be obtained at the UCI ProTour Department (fax: +41 24 468 58 12, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org).
Five teams see their UCI ProTour licenses expire in 2009. There will be seven teams in that situation in 2010, four in 2011 and two in 2012.
Several teams, whose license expires this year, have asked for a renewal of their license. In addition, new teams have shown their intention to obtain a UCI ProTour license.
