The UCI Pro Continental squad is simply one of the hottest pro cycling teams in the world, right now.
The newly-licensed UCI continental team has signed El Mehdi Chokri of Morocco, who will be the first Arab Muslim rider to ride for the team.
Once a major force across Europe, Spanish cycling is a shadow of its former glorious self in the 1980s and 1990s.
SpiderTech, Team Type 1 and UnitedHealthcare have secured Continental Professional status going into 2012.
The teams will be eligible to compete in the world's most prestigious events next season.
