Can anyone point me to a resource or guide on how the UCI assigns the licenses for next year? I know there was a recent post trying to guess which teams would be in and which out be out. As I recall teams are judged based on financial, ethical, administrative and sporting decisions. It appears that the financial and administrative decisions are mostly based on having the money and getting the paperwork done. Ethical consideration is based mostly on doping infractions. It seems that the biggest consideration is the competitive nature of the team (sporting). Teams ranked in the top 15 automatically get a protour license assuming they meet the other criteria. I'd like to know if anyone has information on the sporting criteria. Is it still secret? Do just protour points count? What about tours (Oceania, Africa, America, Europe, Asia)?
