10 Continental, 4 Women's, 3 WorldTour, 2 Pro Continental teams

USA Cycling announced today the final list of UCI-registered teams for the 2014 season: the country had a net gain of two Continental squads to bring the total professional teams to 19, including three WorldTour squads: BMC, Garmin-Sharp and Trek Factory Racing, which returns to USA registration after the WIsconsin bicycle maker took over the license from Luxembourg-based RadioShack-Leopard.

Although the Bissell Pro Cycling squad ceased operations and the vacuum maker shifted its sponsorship to the former Bontrager Development team, the introduction of three new teams to the UCI ranks resulted in a total of 10 Continental teams for 2014. Not listed was Incycle-Predator, of Southern California, which announced a UCI roster yesterday.

UnitedHealthcare and Team Novo Nordisk, formerly known as Team Type 1 continue to be the only Professional Continental teams from the US, while the UnitedHealthcare women's team replaces Exergy-Twenty16 as the fourth UCI women's squad alongside Specialized-lululemon, Optum p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies and Tibco to the Top.

The men's UCI continental teams for 2014 include 5-Hour Energy, Airgas Cycling, Astellas Cycling Team, Bissell Cycling, Champion Systems Stan's No Tubes, Hincapie Sportswear Development Team, Jamis Hagens Berman, Jelly Belly presented by Maxxis, Optum p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies and SmartStop p/b Mountain Khakis.

I suppose lululemon will primarily race in Europe/internationally, as they have. But, UHC has already said their team will race both in the US and in Europe. That means, I hope, Optum, Tibco, and UHC will be facing off in the States from time to time. Looking forward to it.
