from WNT ROTOR Pro Cycling
On the eve of Liege-Bastogne-Liege, WNT ROTOR Pro Cycling are happy to announce they will apply for a UCI Women’s World Tour licence in 2020.
WNT ROTOR will put forward an application to be a part of the UCI Women’s World Tour. The new structure which will be introduced by the governing body will become a two-tier system from 2020 and as a team, we plan on being a part of the highest tier.
We are convinced the new system will make female cycling more professional and after having some positive meetings and discussions with UCI president David Lappartient and Morgane Gaultier, the women’s cycling co-ordinator, it looks to be a well thought-out concept and we are hopeful of gaining Women’s World Tour Status.
There are obligations which need to be met, including pay with a newly implemented minimum salary to our riders, as well as other insurances.
The feeling at WNT ROTOR Pro Cycling is that the sport and especially women’s cycling is moving in the right direction and this is another big step forward. We would relish the opportunity to be racing and representing women’s cycling at the top of an ever-changing future.
I think the UCI, David Lappartient and Morgane Gaultier have done a great job, to make an effective change to women’s cycling, we will be registering our interest with excitement to be a part of the 5 world tour teams in 2020.
