From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 2010 UCI ProTour is the sixth series of the UCI ProTour: a series of 16 races in which the ProTour teams, considered the elite teams of the sport, participate alongside a number of invited "wildcard" teams. As in 2009, there is no competitive element to the ProTour of itself, but all its events contribute towards the 2010 UCI World Ranking. The first race is to be the 2010 Tour Down Under on 19-24 January, and the series will end with two new events, bringing the tour to North America for the first time, the Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec and the Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal on 10 September and 12 September respectively.

Two newly formed teams, the American Team RadioShack and British based Team Sky, joined the ProTour, while the licenses of Bbox Bouygues Telecom and Cofidis were not renewed. The Lampre-Farnese Vini team, although it has a ProTour Licence from the UCI valid until 2013, had its annual registration refused. A number of teams have had name changes: Fuji-Servetto became Footon-Servetto-Fuji, a second name sponsor saw Garmin-Slipstream rename as Garmin-Transitions, and the name of the company, rather than one of its products, is featured in the change from Silence-Lotto to Omega Pharma-Lotto.
