GreenEDGE Cycling is proud to announce that the UCI has approved its license application for WorldTour status. On the basis of the documentation submitted to the UCI License Commission, GreenEDGE has been granted a UCI World Tour license for the 2012-2013 period. This announcement gives Australia its first team in the WorldTour with a roster of 30 riders competing from 2012.
â€œThis is a key moment for Australian cycling and we are proud to enter the WorldTour with a new and extremely motivated project,â€ says team founder Gerry Ryan. â€œI am convinced that we will bring great moments and a lot of passion to the sport with this team. I’d like to use this opportunity to congratulate the entire team and all of our partners with this important, historical step.â€
Eighteen teams have been granted UCI WorldTour status. These teams will be eligible to compete in all WorldTour events.
â€œThis is a team built for the future and we are obviously thrilled to have the license in place,â€ says General Manager Shayne Bannan. â€œWe have been confident all along during the process, but at the same time humble towards the criteria you need to meet in order to get the final approval. We are currently busy with our first team camp and everything is coming together for a great debut year in the WorldTour. We’re young team with big ambitions about giving back to the sport and create excitement both in Australia and across the globe. Cycling has grown immensely over the last years and we are happy to be an integrated part of that positive development.â€
