Unibet.com has been assured of an invitation to the team time trial in Eindhoven, Netherlands, on June 24. The Swedish team was the first to receive an invitation from the organizers of the ProTour race.
"We symbolically wanted the Unibet.com ProTour Team to be the first team to receive an official invitation for our ProTour race", said organizer Anton Ganzeboom. "We consider the Unibet.com team as a worthy ProTour team. In this way, we want to support Unibet.com in their current participation problems," the team noted on its website, unibetcycling.com.
Unibet has been kept out of recent races by the ASO, which has expressed concerns over the team's sponsor.
