American team Twenty20 has chosen to forgo a UCI Continental licence and instead compete as a women’s domestic elite team under USA Cycling in 2020. Team owner Nicola Cranmer told Cyclingnews that the decision will not affect time trial world champion Chloe Dygert, who will focus only on time trials and track racing in her approach to the summer Olympic Games in Tokyo.

"We have a very specific schedule for Chloe this year, as we do every year," Cranmer said. "She will be racing road in North America only. It’s not necessary that we are UCI, there are zero benefits to us with our schedule this year. Track and time trials will be her focus."
