The Alé Cipollini team announced today it has signed on the Slovenian company BTC as a second title sponsor, with the team name changing to Alé BTC Ljubljana for 2020. The partnership will enable the squad to apply for UCI Women's WorldTour status through the 2023 season.

"I have always cherished cycling, it is in my DNA, as it is in that of the company I represent, but women's cycling means much more to me, it's not just a passion, it's a mission," team president Alessia Piccolo said.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
