UCI announces 2018 World Tour and Pro Continental Teams

The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) has confirmed the list of 18 teams that have registered for the 2018 WorldTour.

There are no changes to the teams that took part in the 2017 top-flight calendar of events, with all 18 re-applying. The only amendment to the 2017 list is the change in name for the US-registered Cannondale-Drapac squad, who become EF Education First-Drapac presented by Cannondale.

The UCI also named the 26 teams that have so far applied for a second-tier Professional Continental licence, and there are some changes in that list over the previous season. In 2017, 22 teams rode with a Pro Conti licence.
