Five events obtain a renewal of their UCI ProTour license

Based on the applications received, the Licenses Commission, which met in Geneva on August 25th, has granted a four-year UCI ProTour license, from 1st January 2009 until 31 December 2012, to the following five events: 

• Vuelta Ciclista al Pais Vasco (ESP) 
• Volta Ciclista a Catalunya (ESP) 
• Clasica Cicista San Sebastian – San Sebastian (ESP) 
• GP Ouest France-Plouay (FRA) 
• Tour de Pologne (POL) 

These races join the 2009 UCI ProTour calendar alongside the Tour Down Under (AUS) and the Tour de Romandie (SUI), which already have a license for the next season. 

Over the next few weeks, the Licenses Commission will announce its decision concerning the applications of other UCI ProTour organizers who have also confirmed their wish to continue their commitment to the circuit set up by the International Cycling Union. 

As from the 2009 season, the UCI ProTour will be part of the “UCI World Calendar”, made up of UCI ProTour races as well as “historic” races.
