FSA-DS: The Value of Men's UCI Teams

FSA DS

A purely numerical approach! Get a list of all Pro Tour and Pro Continental UCI teams. Of their current riders, sum the points scored in 2011 and rider prices in 2012. Divide those figures to get a tentative UCI team ranking by expected return-on-investment. Forty UCI teams ranked in a long table on the flip:
