The teams selection for the Tour de France 2016: like last year

    The teams selection for the Tour de France 2016: like last yearThe 22 teams selected to participate in the Tour de France 2016 have been announced this morning. In addition to the 18 UCI WorldTeams, 4 wildcards have been awarded ... to the same teams as last year!

    The 18 UCI WorldTeams

    Thanks to their UCI WorldTeam status, 18 teams are automatically invited to participate in the Tour de France 2016 since it's a UCI WorldTour race (one should keep in mind that following the fact that A.S.O. does not agree with the reform of the professional cycling as decided by the UCI [mainly concerning the UCI WorldTour], A.S.O. has announced it will register its race as "hors classe" in 2017 and the participation rules will thus be different).

    These teams are thus the following: AG2R La Mondiale, Astana Pro Team, BMC Racing Team, Cannondale Pro Cycling Team, Dimension Data, Etixx-QuickStep, FDJ, IAM Cycling, Lampre-Merida, Lotto Soudal, Movistar Team, Orica GreenEDGE, Team Giant-Alpecin, Team Katusha, Team LottoNL-Jumbo, Team Sky, Tinkoff and Trek-Segafredo.

    The 4 wildcards: the same 4 Continental Pro teams as last year

    Last year there were 17 UCI WorldTeams and 5 wildcards. The MTN-Qhubeka team, which has become Dimension Data in the mean time, has since integrated the list of UCI WorldTeams and is thus now one of the "automatically invited" teams.

    In addition we find the same 4 teams as last year: the 3 French teams Cofidis, solutions crédits, Direct Energie (which was called Europcar last year) and Fortuneo-Vital Concept (which was called Bretagne-Séché Environnement last year) and the German team Bora-Argon 18.
