AP: The UCI said Friday it had granted a new license to Team Sky for the 2010-2013 seasons and extended French team Ag2r La Mondiale for the next three seasons.

“It’s a good thing,” UCI president Pat McQuaid told The Associated Press. “There is no current British team in the Pro Tour so it’s an extension of the globalization of the sport.”

Team Sky will share management with the British track team which topped cycling’s medals table at the Beijing Olympics. The new Radio Shack team being assembled by Lance Armstrong must wait to see if it can join the Pro Tour.

16 guys so far, but they probably need another 10 or so for the rigorous Pro Tour schedule.

I don’t recognize any big GC contender type names on there. Does anyone else?

Waiting for Bradley Wiggins to join – they’ve made no secret of the fact they want him.
