The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) has announced the teams that are registered for the 2023 season, including UCI Women’s WorldTeams, UCI WorldTeams and UCI ProTeams.

“As the number of candidate teams was greater than the number of licenses available for the first time since the creation of the division, the teams were evaluated on the basis of the sporting criterion, in accordance with article 2.13.035 of the UCI Regulations. As such, the applications from the following teams could not be accepted,” read a statement from the UCI.
