UCI Announces There Will Be 19 ProTour Teams

From UCI just now: "The UCI today announced that exceptionally there are 19 registered UCI ProTeams in the 2013 season. The decision comes further to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruling of 15 February 2013 which upheld the application of Katusha Management SA to be registered as a UCI ProTeam for the season 2013.

The decision to have 19 as opposed to 18 Teams was taken by the Professional Cycling Council today."

Can't wait to see what Acquarone says after saying, "Logistically everything has been set up for races like Tirreno and the Giro. I really don’t know how we’d have one more team in the race." (read more here from earlier today).
