Fuerteventura-Canarias to fight UCI decision

Spanish team Fuerteventura-Canarias has announced on Saturday that the squad will take legal action against the UCI. On Friday, December 23, the UCI issued the list of Professional Continental team licenses for 2007, which lacked Fuerteventura-Canarias despite a legally valid application, according to the team.

In a press release, the team management stated, "The International Cycling Union sent the team a letter, explaining that the only reason of the refusal was that the team didn't comply with the regulations' deadlines. However, this same regulation does not include the possibility of a license refusal if the deadlines for presenting the documents aren't met."
