USA Teams:
Fourteen Men's Continental Teams, Two Pro Continental Squads and One UCI Women's Team Confirmed for Upcoming Year
Following earlier announcements of the 2008 USA Cycling National Racing Calendar (NRC) and the 2008 USA Cycling Professional Tour, the list of U.S.-based, internationally-sanctioned teams that will comprise much of the two circuits' fields has also been revealed by the National Governing Body.

The 2008 professional road cycling season will see 16 men's teams sanctioned by the UCI. That list includes 14 Continental squads and a pair of Professional Continental outfits.

UCI Pro Continental Teams
The two Professional Continental teams that are set to compete throughout United States, European and other international markets this season include the BMC Racing Team and Slipstream/Chipotle presented by H30.  The U.S. will also field one UCI-sanctioned women's team this season. After claiming an overall NRC title in 2007, the Webcor Builders Women's Professional Cycling Team will be the lone UCI-sanctioned squad in 2008.
