The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) has declared the official list of professional teams registered for the 2024 season. This year is the second licensing cycle for UCI Women’s WorldTeams, a cycle which started in 2020 and concluded in 2023. The 15 available licences for the 2024-2025 period have been granted, and from 2026, these will align with UCI men’s WorldTour licences, being allocated for three-year terms.

2024-2025 Women’s WorldTour teams

After rigorous evaluation of all applications against ethical, financial, administrative, organisational, and sporting criteria, the UCI Licence Commission has awarded 15 UCI Women’s WorldTour licences for 2024-2025 to the following teams:

AG Insurance – Soudal Team (AGS – BEL)
Canyon//SRAM Racing (CSR – GER)
Ceratizit – WNT Pro Cycling Team (WNT – GER)
Fenix – Deceuninck (FED – BEL)
Human Powered Health (HPH – USA)
Lidl – Trek (LTK – USA)
Liv – AlUla – Jayco (LAJ – AUS)
Movistar Team (MOV – ESP)
Roland (CGS – SUI)
Team DSM – Firmenich PostNL (DFP – NED)
Team SD Worx (SDW – NED)
Team Visma | Lease a Bike (TVL – NED)
Uno-X Mobility (UXM – NOR)

The team Laboral Kutxa – Fundacion Euskadi (LKF – ESP) also applied but was not granted a licence and will be registered as a UCI Women’s Continental Team in 2024.

Cofidis Women Team (FRA) and Tashkent City Women Professional Cycling Team (UZB) have also secured a pair of mandatory invitations to WWT races in the 2024 season. They were the two highest-scoring Continental Teams in the 2023 UCI Women’s World Ranking. That means they will definitely be at races like the Tour de France Femmes and Giro d’Italia Women if they want to be.

Ceratizit-WNT’s reaction came from its team manager Claude Sun who expressed pride in this advancement, acknowledging it as a culmination of a decade of dedication and commitment from the team’s riders, staff, and sponsors. Dirk Baldinger also echoed this sentiment, crediting the team’s hard work and sponsor support for their successes, including 11 wins by six different riders in the last season. The team aspires to maintain its top 10 global ranking in the upcoming season.
