Ben Swift’s WorldTour ride hangs in balance as TJ Sport team await UCI licence decision


TJ Sport team cancels training camp amid a bid for submit relevant WorldTour application paperwork to the UCI before the December 15 deadline.

Ben Swift‘s switch to TJ Sport from Team Sky might backfire if a UCI WorldTour licence is refused. The team – which could become China’s first top team – cancelled a training camp this month and missed a UCI meeting yesterday in Majorca, Spain.

The team, for almost a quarter of a century known as Lampre and based in Italy, missed out on the first round of WorldTour licences a week and a half ago when all the other 17 teams received theirs. It told Cycling Weekly at the time that it had asked for a delay while it organises its papers for the UCI’s licence commission.

Since then, the team cancelled a pre-season training camp that was due to be held in Tuscany and missed a UCI meeting.
