With the recent running of Il Lombardia marking the end of the 2022 WorldTour racing calendar, I’ve been taking some time to reflect on the trends we saw emerge in the past season and plan out the BTP off-season content. To kick off this reflection and re-examination, I wanted to step back and take stock of how each team stacked up in terms of the UCI point rankings.

vuelta22st6

Below are the top 23 teams (18 1st division + 4 PT) in order of the UCI points they gained from their top 10 point-scoring riders throughout the 2022 season (aka the UCI point rankings).

breakdown

As we can see, Jumbo-Visma takes the top spot in the UCI rankings for the second time in three seasons, with former powerhouse, Quick-Step, falling all the way down to 6th place. And perhaps even more surprising, Jumbo-Visma also ranks as the top team in wins (tied with UAE), while Quick-Step fails to win the season-long ‘win title’ for the first time in over ten years.

And below we can see how my pre-season BTP NET projection model stacked up against the post-season UCI Team Point Rankings.

2022 Team BTP NET Projections Compared to Their Final UCI Point WorldTour Ranking Positions: 1) Team Jumbo-Visma (1) 2) UAE Team Emirates (2) 3) INEOS Grenadiers (3) 4) Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl (6) 5) Bahrain – Victorious (8) 6) BORA – hansgrohe (4) 7) Trek – Segafredo (11) 8) EF Education – EasyPost (15) 9) Groupama – FDJ (7) 10) Cofidis, Solutions Crédits (9) 11) Movistar Team (10) 12) AG2R Citroën Team (13) 13) Israel – Premier Tech (16) 14) Team BikeExchange (14) 15) Intermarché Wanty Gobert (5) 16) Astana Qazaqstan (18) 17) Lotto Soudal (12) 18) Team DSM (17)

I will dive into team performance in further detail when I do my weighted BTP NET Rankings for the coming season, but below are a few quick takeaways from these initial results.

tdf22st17

Initial Takeaways:

1) Jumbo-Visma is officially cycling’s new superteam

  • After a multi-year turnaround project, the Dutch team is now home to some of the sport’s best riders (Wout van Aert, Primoz Roglic and Jonas Vingegaard) and will exit the 2022 season with a Tour de France overall title along with the most UCI points and wins.
  • This is one of the most difficult achievements in the sport since the single-minded focus on winning an overall title at the grand tour usually means a team can’t compile enough wins and UCI points to lead the WorldTour.
  • They will now head into the 2023 season as the undisputed best team in the sport and will have massive expectations on their shoulders at nearly every race where they take the start line.

fleche22m

2) Quick-Step fails to take the ‘win title’ for the first time since 2012

  • Up until 2022, the Belgian team eschewed stage race results in order to rack up wins in one-day races and individual stages.
  • While 2022 was disappointing in the respect that the team failed to take the win title for the first time since 2012 and produced their worst results in the cobbled classics since the founding of the team in 2003, it was a massive success in they won their first-ever grand tour (Vuelta a España) and unearthed the sport’s next big grand tour star in Remco Evenepoel.
  • Assuming the team can hang onto Evenepoel beyond 2022 (he is being pursued by bigger-budgeted teams like Ineos), it will be interesting to see how the team sets its financial and sporting priorities going forward.
  • Interestingly, while their 4th place finish in the UCI Points rankings is technically disappointing, it is the first time their pre-season BTP NET rankings have roughly aligned with their actual finish, which reflects that their past results have been more a result of the team’s structure producing an overachieving squad than pure talent.

vuelta22st21

3) UAE failed to defend its Tour de France, and struggled to look like a cohesive team at times, but produced their best season ever

  • Tadej Pogačar’s UAE team failed to win the Tour de France for the first time since 2020, but their 2021 off-season spending spree appeared to pay off as they tied for first in the win title and were the only team within 2,000 points of Jumbo-Visma in the UCI points race.
  • This shows us that while they appeared to struggle to select the right Tour de France lineup to support Pogačar and to race as a cohesive unit in the races where their superstar wasn’t present, they will head into the off-season viewing 2022 as a successful campaign and that they could potentially emerge as the sport’s most dominant team in future years if they can find the right racing formula to unlock the immense amount of individual talent on the team.

vuelta22st6

4) The French teams had a surprisingly strong year

  • After years of struggling to maintain pace with their competition in the world of hyper-advanced training, French teams produced a strong 2022, landing five teams in the top 20 and staving off relegation, which allowed them to keep four teams in the 18-team WorldTour.

bystrom

5) Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert punched well above its weight

  • If Alpecin was the underfunded overachiever of the 2021 season, Intermarché, who finished second-to-last in the 2021 WorldTour rankings, is the darling of 2022.
  • With an extremely thoughtful team-building and in-race strategy, the underdog Belgian team was able to turn an 18th-place finish in 2021 into a shockingly high 5th-place finish in 2022.
  • Most impressive is the gap between their BTP NET projection of 15th and 5th place finish, which shows that they really maximized the talent in their team.

alpecin

6) DSM, EF, and Astana are in desperate need of a turnaround in 2023

  • While Intermarché was flying high, three better-funded WorldTour rivals (DSM, EF, and Astana) suffered through absolutely awful seasons where points, wins, podiums and top tens were extremely hard to come by.
  • While Astana and DSM struggled mainly due to weak rosters, EF’s extremely large delta between their BTP NET projected finish (8th), and their actual finish (18th), shows that their problems were more execution than talent related. I expect the American team’s off-season will include a significant amount of performance fact-finding to figure out how this could have happened.
  • Putting just how poor the seasons of this trio were into perspective, while DSM only trailed AG2R by a single win, they finished over 2,000 UCI points behind the French team, which had a fairly disappointing season itself.

Next week I will be breaking down the top 20 in the UCI point rider rankings before getting into the usual BTP off-season content of digging deeper into team results and trends from the 2022 seasons in more depth, restarting the Weekly Transfer Analysis, and attempting to project 2023 performances with my BTP NET series after the rosters are set in January. An important note is that if you want access to all of these posts, you have to be a paying BTP subscriber .

2022 WorldTour team kits: The definitive ranking

Which team has won the style battle this year?

A selection of the new kits in the 2022 peloton

The new team kits are here for the 2022 road season, so don't adjust your screens just yet to figure out which riders are lined out for those hotly-contested sprints. Most of the big teams are still identifiable with mainstay colours of yellow or red or blue, but there has been an influx of swirled patterns and saturated pigment mixtures to create a bit of visual chaos.

The staff at  Cyclingnews  have been getting sidetracked by looking at the pageantry of patterns and colour palettes on offer this season, and once again we've cast our judgemental eyes over all the men's WorldTour and Women's WorldTour teams' attire. 

The scores have been aggregated to produce a 'definitive' - yet subjective - ranking. There are a total of 32 teams across both WorldTours but, with some sharing kits between their men's and women's squads, there are a grand total of 28 to be sorted in order of quality.

Our ranking runs in reverse order, from rock-bottom number 28 right down to the 'best in show'. As ever, it's a game of opinions, so let us know your best and worst kits in the comments below.

28. Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux

Biniam Girmay (Intermarché-Wanty Gobert)

The Belgian team start their second WorldTour season with a defence of their last-place ranking for team kits from 2021. They've repeated their look of ‘sponsor soup’ on the front of the jersey, giving a shout-out to all their corporate brands in horizontal fonts and logos. Gone are some blue and lime green accents that did stand out in the peloton, now replaced with some pale yellow and more white. Overall, it is very basic. (JBT)

27. Team DSM

Team DSM riders pose in new Nalini kit

What Team DSM's kit had going for it in 2021 was clear identification from above – their iconic pair of vertical stripes. That and their colourful logo worked well enough for the German team, so there are few changes aside from more logos on the upper chest. But a black kit in a summer sport is just murder, no matter the quality of the fabric, and from up close it's a bit cluttered. From the front, the dark kit will be confused with Movistar. (LW)

26. BikeExchange-Jayco (men)

I'm sorry but this is a real shocker. Something about the medium blue is just very unappealing. The kit brings to mind something from the late 90s and it instantly looks dated as a result. Black shorts and white sponsor logos might have helped but I didn't even have to think about putting this at the bottom of my ranking. DSM's kit is dull once again and Intermarché's is a plain sponsor billboard but I'm surprised that they've ranked below this, to be honest. (DO)

25. Liv Racing-Xstra

Liv Racing-Xstra 2022

There are no significant changes to the Liv Racing jersey as the team stick to their black-and-purple floral design in 2022. The minor new design aspect includes the black pedal-like shape cascading over the left shoulder opposite the large flower positioned on the right, adding a bit more dimension. The team have also made space for new co-sponsor Xstra. The kit will at least stand out among the sea of pink in the peloton this year. (KF)

24. Bahrain Victorious

Bahrain Victorious 2022 Altea 09122021 Heinrich Haussler AUS Bahrain Victorious photo Tommaso PelagalliSprintCycling2022

Bahrain Victorious have been searching for an identity since joining the WorldTour in 2017, going from simple to old-fashioned to way-too-bold and back to a simpler red design last year. The blue arm bands were the one saving grace that helped distinguish them from Arkéa-Samsic and Cofidis in head-on images. Their design is similar again, but with a ramping up of the graphical elements. They still have a way to go to land on a truly iconic design. (LW)

23. BikeExchange-Jayco (women)

Amanda Spratt (BikeExchange-Jayco) leads the peloton

The only positive thing that can be said about this kit is that it's better than the men's. (PF)

22. Roland Cogeas Edelweiss

Roland Cogeas Edelweiss 2022

It's still January and Roland Cogeas Edelweiss have already gone through several jersey re-dos, and while we aren't sure if this version has the final stamp of approval, we do know that the team will keep their signature red colour with a treatment of magenta into a navy blue fade for Women's WorldTour debut in 2022. Perhaps a lost opportunity not to have put an edelweiss, the white mountain flower, on the jersey somewhere. (KF)

21. QuickStep-AlphaVinyl

QuickStep-AlphaVinyl 2022 kit Castelli

The Belgian team have had some classy kits over the years – 2018 and 2019 the latest – but this one doesn't stand out much. The pink trim is a nice and bright addition but otherwise it's quite an unremarkable offering. The ugly logos of Safety Jogger Shoes and Napoleon Sports & Games aren't pretty and clash with the design, but that's not on the kit designer. It's a bland offering in stark contrast to how the team race. (DO)

20. EF Education-EasyPost & EF Education-Tibco-SVB

The 2022 EF colours

We had to wait so long for these jerseys that we almost forgot about them. There's evidence of putting actual effort into the design there, with the argyle returning and some kind of distorted look going on, and that automatically puts it above the 'plain jersey, just add sponsors' approach of some. It's different and it will stand out but will the faint-looking sponsor logos do so on TV? (DO)

19. AG2R Citroën

AG2R Citroën 2022

The French WorldTeam plummets this year from a top-three position in 2021, mainly due to a lack of inspiration in its remodeled jerseys. The team keep the brown shorts they have worn since their redesign for 2011, and branding for sponsors AG2R La Mondiale and Citroën on the jerseys remain in diagonal position across the front of the jersey. They scored a few points for just being consistent, but came up empty on creativity. (JBT)

18. UAE Team Emirates

It's more of the same for UAE Team Emirates, who return with a virtually identical kit as they had last year. The concept – a white jersey with a red band, a UAE flag, and black and red sleeves – is straightforward enough, but the fade effect on the sleeves makes the kit rather fussier than it needs to be. (BR)

17. Astana Qazaqstan

No change for the Kazakh team, despite an off-season of change. Premier Tech are gone, Alexandr Vinokourov is back in the driving seat, but there’s no new jersey to mark the occasion. Instead, the Premier Tech logo has been replaced by the name of the country they represent which is now back in control of the team. More of the light blue and more of those diamonds – it’s classy enough, but a fade towards the shorts will cost you at this level. (PF)

16. Lotto Soudal

Team Lotto Soudal 2022 Training Camp Altea ESP 11012022 Ewan Caleb AUS Lotto Soudal Jarrad Drizners AUS Lotto Soudal photo Jan De MeuleneirPNSprintCycling2022

A familiar feel and a very safe offering from the Belgian team, who themselves are far from safe from WorldTour relegation. They've dialled things back from the last two years, where the black panel at the top of the jersey seemed to lend an edge to the look. Now the jersey is almost all red which, while stylish enough, feels very. forgettable. Mid-table in our ranking, which you sense they'd take. (PF)

15. Groupama-FDJ

Groupama-FDJ 2022

Since their inception in 1997 as La Française des Jeux, Marc Madiot’s team have always been bedecked in one of the most elegant kits in the peloton, and the most recent iteration, which coincided with Groupama’s arrival as title sponsor four years ago, is no exception. There are no changes for 2022, with the familiar bleu-blanc-rouge colour scheme understated but distinctive. (BR)

14. UAE Team ADQ

Marta Bastianelli UAE Team ADQ

The new kids on the block, UAE Team ADQ, burst on the scene with a unique team jersey. While they also jumped on the colour bandwagon with a cross-body fade of blue, purple, orange and yellow, it is different enough from the other Women’s WorldTour teams' apparel to be distinct. The accents of white on one sleeve and lower right portion of the jersey give this a nice pop. Too bad there is no crescendo on the shorts. (JBT)

13. Ineos Grenadiers

Ineos Grenadiers BioRacer kit

Thankfully, Ineos have taken the hood ornament off their chest and adopted a lighter 2022 kit that references the jerseys of the last two seasons – maintaining a sort of continuity. They've given the kit a fresh look, with red sleeves and their subtle faded triangles setting off the dark blue torso. The combination will work well from above and from the front, while they've also given Omar Fraile a great-looking Spanish champion's jersey. (LW)

12. Israel-Premier Tech

Simon Clarke

White and blue isn't the most eye-catching colour combination around, but this design is a big upgrade on past jerseys. I think that the geometric pattern is a stand-out, and you can also spot something similar going on in two other top jerseys – Euskaltel-Euskadi and Bora-Hansgrohe. Easily their best effort since the team were founded in 2015. (DO)

11. SD Worx

SD Worx 2022 kit reveal

There was a parade of splashy patterns introduced to women’s kits this season, and SD Worx are part of that crowded scene, with a kaleidoscope of pink, red and purple. Interesting that the one yellow sleeve may be the most distinguishable feature to make it easy to identify riders in the peloton. They slipped a few notches in the redesign of the unique purple and red kits from 2021. (JBT)

10. Canyon-SRAM Racing

Canyon-SRAM Racing at 2022 camp in Spain showcase new kits by Canyon

One of the highest-ranked kits last season for its midnight galaxy-inspired creation, Canyon-SRAM have been the trend-setters of abstract jersey designs that are moving to the fore in 2022. The switch from uber-cool Rapha to in-house Canyon clothing sponsor caused unnecessary apprehension, but their all-new 'chaos of the elements' design is one of the best pink jerseys in the peloton, with cascading pastel shades of crimson, pink and blue and stand-out mint green diamonds on the sleeves. The only question is which team did it better – Canyon-SRAM or their newly-launched development team Canyon-SRAM Generation? (KF)

9. Trek-Segafredo (men)

New kits for 2022 for Trek-Segafredo men

The men’s Trek-Segafrdo kit design is so simple and effective, it is almost iconic. A white jersey is a rarity in the near psychedelic modern peloton and so the title sponsor logos of Trek and Segafredo stand out without any competing colour noise. Meanwhile a limited number of minor sponsors keeps the jersey clean and tidy. The black shorts complete the retro-style look. The team have swapped fluorescent yellow for high-vis pink for their training kit but the simplicity and style remain the same. (SF)

8. Human Powered Health

Barbara Malcotti at 2022 January camp with Human Powered Health

The American team have changed title sponsor and their colours for 2022, following the trend for bright, fluorescent colours. They pull it off with a balanced fade from orange on the shoulders to purple at the waist and black shorts that have only a touch of the same colours. The addition of the ‘Boltman’ icon reminds me of Flash Gordon or some other superhero but also brings to mind a sense of speed and power. (SF)

7. Jumbo-Visma

Jumbo-Visma 2022 kit

Jumbo-Visma’s yellow and black colours appeared harsh when they first appeared in the peloton and earned the team the nickname of the ‘killer wasps’. Touches of red and green for new sponsors have softened the look and almost turned it into the infamous Jelly Belly jersey. However. it still stands out in the peloton and is not overbearing thanks to the black shorts and the class of the likes of Tom Dumoulin, Marianne Vos and Primož Roglič. (SF)

The Cofidis 2022 team jersey

From zero to hero. Cofidis' kit was awful last year – it's been awful for a good few years – and suddenly they present us with this. Gone is that insipid shade of red and that soulless sea of white. In its place: red and white, but not as you know it. A few shades here, a few swishes and patterns there, and suddenly the red sings dynamism and the white screams elegance. Most importantly of all, gone are those awful all-red shorts, replaced by a simple black that serves the jersey far better. Big marks for the vertical sponsor and a few more for the full-length red zip. Some of my colleagues weren't quite so enthusiastic, which is why it's not higher on our ranking, but in my eyes this is a masterpiece. (PF)

5. Trek-Segafredo (women)

During team camp the new 2022 women's kits with blue accents were unveiled by Trek-Segafredo

Trek-Segafredo had arguably the best kit in professional cycling last season, and while this year’s effort is not as idiosyncratic, it remains firmly among the more stylish in the peloton. The design, a white jersey with a light blue band, is simple, but neatly executed. At least half the teams in the men's and women's WorldTours should take note. (BR)

4. FDJ Nouvelle-Aquitaine Futuroscope

FDJ Nouvelle-Aquitaine Futuroscope 2022 kit

The French Women's WorldTeam have a history of clean, sharp-looking kits and this year is no exception. Moving from a mostly white jersey to a solid navy torso with white text and red faded accents preserves the iconic FDJ identity while giving the kit a bit of flair. With seemingly most women's teams opting for some variation of a bright orange, pink, or purple design, the FDJ team will stand out with their red, white and blue in its classic simplicity. (LW)

3. Uno-X Pro Cycling

Uno-X Pro Cycling training camp 2022

It's a clutter-free design and it's more or less the same kit that the men's second-division team have worn since 2018, but the bright block colours and simplicity really work – especially with the team's black shorts. That colour combination will stand out during races, which is a rarity in the peloton where numerous teams follow similar trends every year. Similar to the likes of Jumbo-Visma, Trek-Segafredo and Lotto Soudal, it looks classic and modern at the same time. (DO)

2. Movistar

Movistar 2022 kit Van Vleuten Mas

The Spanish squad have annually been moving away from a colour too similar to Astana to a darker blue, and this season they went for an even bolder choice. The colour makes the light-blue logo and horizontal lines pop much better than the white on blue and will be easy to spot from the helicopter shots. The repeat of the Movistar logo on the sleeves helps make their riders stand out in the head-on images. Kudos for keeping Jelena Erić's Serbian and Abner Gonzalez's Puerto Rican champion's jerseys simple. (LW)

1. Bora-Hansgrohe

Bora-Hansgrohe 2022 kit

While Bora-Hansgrohe have switched up their roster by showing Peter Sagan the door and signing Sam Bennett, Sergio Higuita and Aleksandr Vlasov, they have also upped their look for 2022. New is a predominantly green, black and red kit that has clearly been designed with style. The German team ha e switched from Sportful to Le Col and the new design recalls the Mondrian-inspired La Vie Claire jersey with a red box low down combining with the black and different green shades. Added to black shorts and green helmets, it's a classy look. (SF)

UCI announces teams for the 2022 WorldTour with six new women's teams joining the top tier

The women's top division of the sport is growing every year with yet more teams joining

  • Sign up to our newsletter Newsletter

Team Jumbo-Visma women

The UCI has unveiled the names of the teams which will make up the 2022 WorldTour, with six new women's teams stepping up to the top tier of racing.

Five of the women's teams are moving up to the World Tour from second division ranks, with the UAE team taking on the licence from Alé-BTC-Ljubljana, who were already a WorldTour squad.

This means that there will be 14 teams in the women's WorldTour for 2022. The other new teams are Team Jumbo-Visma, EF Education-Tibco-SVB, Uno-X Pro Cycling, Human Powered Health (formally Rally) and Roland-Cogeas-Edelweiss Squad.

In the men's WorldTour there are 18 teams confirmed to be in the top division of the sport with just the one team from the 2021 season not gaining a place. 

Qhubeka-NextHash was refused its 2022 WorldTour licence by the UCI amid financial and sponsorship issues for the South African registered team.

This means that there will be one less team in the top tier for 2022 but three Pro Continental teams will be invited to some of the biggest races with Alpecin-Fenix and Team Arkéa-Samsic both being invited to all UCI WorldTour events, meaning the likes of Nairo Quintana (Arkéa-Samsic) can ride the Giro d'Italia once again.

Team of Peter Sagan, TotalEnergies, have been granted invitations to all one-day WorldTour races but will have to apply for a wildcard to the big stage races.

There have been 17 teams confirmed for the second division of the men's side of the sport with a few new sponsor names to get used to with Rally Cycling becoming Human Powered Health and Androni Giocattoli-Sidermec becoming Drone Hopper-Androni Giocattoli.

Hi, I'm one of Cycling Weekly's content writers for the web team responsible for writing stories on racing, tech, updating evergreen pages as well as the weekly email newsletter. Proud Yorkshireman from the UK's answer to Flanders, Calderdale, go check out the cobbled climbs!

I started watching cycling back in 2010, before all the hype around London 2012 and Bradley Wiggins at the Tour de France. In fact, it was Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck's battle in the fog up the Tourmalet on stage 17 of the Tour de France.

It took me a few more years to get into the journalism side of things, but I had a good idea I wanted to get into cycling journalism by the end of year nine at school and started doing voluntary work soon after. This got me a chance to go to the London Six Days, Tour de Yorkshire and the Tour of Britain to name a few before eventually joining Eurosport's online team while I was at uni, where I studied journalism. Eurosport gave me the opportunity to work at the world championships in Harrogate back in the awful weather.

After various bar jobs, I managed to get my way into Cycling Weekly in late February of 2020 where I mostly write about racing and everything around that as it's what I specialise in but don't be surprised to see my name on other news stories.

When not writing stories for the site, I don't really switch off my cycling side as I watch every race that is televised as well as being a rider myself and a regular user of the game Pro Cycling Manager. Maybe too regular.

UCI Expands WorldTour Teams Sizes for 2021 and 2022

Download PDF

In a little-noticed development, the Pro Cycling Council – the UCI body that oversees road racing – has approved a temporary expansion of the allowable WorldTour team sizes for 2021 and 2022.

In 2020, teams were allowed 30 riders, assuming that at least two of those athletes were neo-pros. The comparable team size figure has been expanded to 32 for next year, dropping to 31 for 2022 and then back to 30 in 2023.  UCI spokesman Louis Chenaille told  The Outer Line  that this exceptional authorization was approved within the context of the on-going COVID crisis, in order to support the employment of a greater number of riders during these challenging times. The change was apparently announced earlier to the teams as part of the registration specifications for 2021.

While the official WorldTour team size has been limited to 28 riders in the past, teams possessed the ability to sign two additional riders assuming they were neo-pros, thus allowing them to have an effective team size of 30 riders.

A few teams have already taken advantage of this expansion. About a week ago, Team  Israel Start-Up Nation  was the first to  announce its expanded roster . According to current figures on  ProCyclingStats , ISN remains the largest team in the WT with the full complement of 32 riders, though teams Astana-Premier Tech and Team DSM (formerly Sunweb) both list 31 riders.

And of course, there are some 35 pro riders who have yet to sign a contract for next year who could still be added to some of these teams. According to  ProCyclingStats , this includes several top riders, such as Jonathan Caicedo, Jan Polanc, and Sebastian Juan Molano. 

And as we hypothesized in our  AIRmail  newsletter earlier this week, this expanded team size may be what has allowed the addition of certain riders to teams that might not have otherwise happened – for example, the late addition of Mark Cavendish  to Team Deceuninck-QuickStep. There may be a few more announcements in the coming days.

Men’s and women’s professional road cycling: 51 teams have submitted essential documents with a view to registration in 2023

Women’s first division road teams and men’s first and second division road teams wishing to be registered for the 2023 season must submit their registration file to the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI). The UCI then assesses, with external financial auditor PwC, whether the teams are in compliance with the  UCI Regulations .

The UCI is now publishing the list of teams that have submitted the essential documents (as stipulated in articles 2.13.087, 2.15.069bis et 2.16.014bis) with a view to their registration for 2023.

A total of 51 teams have submitted these documents with a view to registration in 2023:

13 women's teams wish to renew their UCI Women’s WorldTeam status for the last year of the four-year licence period;

moreover, in compliance with the provisions of article 2.13.032 of the UCI Regulations:

3 UCI Women’s Continental Teams have applied for a UCI Women’s WorldTeam licence and for registration as a UCI Women’s WorldTeam; this would bring the number of UCI Women’s WorldTeams to 15 for the 2023 season that will conclude the first licensing cycle for UCI Women’s WorldTeams;

21 men’s teams wish to obtain a new three-year licence and be registered with UCI WorldTeam status;

14 men’s teams are applying for registration as UCI ProTeam.

For the sake of clarity, the UCI issues a reminder that any applicant teams that have not submitted the essential documents by 17 October and are not included in the lists below still have the possibility to regularise their situation up until the end of the registration procedure. 

Decisions on the award of the 18 UCI WorldTour licences and the remaining UCI Women’s WorldTour licence(s) are the exclusive responsibility of the Licence Commission (art. 2.13.031 and 2.15.201 of the UCI Regulations). This Commission will make its decisions in the first half of December after evaluating the candidate teams' files on the basis of all five required criteria - sporting, administrative, ethical, financial and organisational – the totality of which must be fulfilled (art. 2.13.035 and 2.15.011). 

In view of the above, the UCI will not be able to disclose the list of teams holding a UCI WorldTour and UCI Women's WorldTour licence in 2023 until the registration process for these teams has been completed. The UCI will issue a press release on this subject when the decisions of the Licence Commission have been communicated to the teams in December.

Ligue des champions: les adversaires potentiels de Lille au 3e tour préliminaire

Un petit lot de consolation pour le Lille. Une semaine après avoir laissé échapper la troisième place de Ligue 1 , directement qualificative pour la phase de poules de la Ligue des champions, le Losc a bénéficié d’un petit coup de pouce dimanche. Le titre du Cercle de Bruges en Belgique et la quatrième place arrachée par l’Atalanta en Serie A (qui envoie Benfica directement en phase de poules) permettent aux Nordistes d’aborder ce troisième tour comme l’une des quatre têtes de série au jeu du coefficient UEFA.

Fenerbahçe, le plus corsé

Les Lillois (47.000 points UEFA) évitent ainsi les Glasgow Rangers (63.000), le Slavia Prague (53.000) ou le Red Bull Salzbourg (50.000). Au 3e tour, les Lillois pourraient ainsi affronter les Belges de l’Union Saint-Gilloise, les Néerlandais de Twente, les Turcs de Fenerbahçe, les Ukrainiens du Dynamo Kiev, les Serbes du Partizan Belgrade ou les Suisses de Lugano. Les quatre dernières équipes citées s’affronteront au 2e tour.

Le match aller aura lieu le 6 ou 7 août avant le retour une semaine plus tard, soit avant la reprise du championnat de France. En cas de qualification, les hommes de Paulo Fonseca (dont l’avenir sur le banc nordiste est très incertain) devraient encore passer par les barrages. S’ils s’en sortaient de nouveau, ils intégreraient alors la phase de poule de la nouvelle formule de la Ligue des champions en compagnie du PSG, Monaco et Brest.

Les Dogues, qui restent sur un beau parcours en Conference League (élimination en quarts de finale conter Aston Villa), ont disputé la Ligue des champions pour la dernière fois en 2021-2022. Sortis premiers de leur groupe devant Salzbourg, Séville et Wolfsburg, ils avaient été éliminés en huitièmes de finale par Chelsea.
