Katusha granted WorldTour licence by UCI


The Katusha team has been granted a WorldTour licence by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) last week upheld the Russian team's appeal against the UCI's original decision to deny it a ProTeam licence.

The move means that there will now be 19 registered WorldTour teams for the 2013 season. According to a UCI statement issued on Monday: "the decision to have 19 as opposed to 18 Teams was taken by the Professional Cycling Council today".
