UCI ProTour - 2008 Teams
18 teams registered by the UCI Pro Tour Council

The UCI ProTour Council (CUPT) has made a decision on the 19 registration requests submitted by UCI ProTeams before the statutory deadline (20 November). Every year, teams that hold a UCI ProTour licence must submit a registration renewal application to the UCI. This procedure helps the UCI to ensure that all teams fulfil the stated requirements, particularly in legal and financial terms.

After the applications were reviewed by the CUPT, the following 18 teams were registered by the UCI:
• Ag2r-La Mondiale (FRA)
• Astana (LUX)
• Bouygues Télécom (FRA)
• Caisse d’Epargne (FRA)
• Cofidis, le Crédit par Téléphone (FRA)
• Crédit Agricole (FRA)
• Euskaltel-Euskadi (ESP)
• Française des Jeux (FRA)
• Gerolsteiner (GER)
• High Road (ex-T-Mobile) *
• Lampre (ITA)
• Liquigas (ITA)
• Milram (ITA)
• Quick Step (BEL)
• Rabobank (NED)
• Saunier Duval - Scott (ESP)
• Silence-Lotto (BEL)

The team did not submit its application before the deadline and was therefore not registered. In accordance with the regulations, the CUPT Chairman asked the Licence Commission to begin proceedings to withdraw’s team license.

The team Astana was registered on the basis of guarantees given by the National Federation of Kazakhstan and the team’s new management regarding strict observance of the commitments made by the previous management team, and with respect to anti-doping measures.

* Conditional. The CUPT registered this team on the basis of the application submitted within the deadline by T-Mobile. The UCI is awaiting further information on the new structure from team management and the auditors (Ernst & Young) before it can be approved. The UCI has confidence in the ability of the team management to ensure the viability of the team.
