The day of truth

Igor González de Galdeano and Euskaltel will stand before the UCI's Licence Commission today, hoping to receive a long-term WorldTour licence.

While Euskaltel fulfilled the sporting criteria by finishing 15th on the UCI's rankings after a much-debated spending spree this off-season, they're still not officially in the WorldTour. Today, the Commission will value the ethical, financial and administrative criteria of the 'new Euskaltel', and is likely to issue a decision on Monday the 26th.

As telephone company Euskaltel has pledged support of the team for the next four years, the team is hoping to receive an equally long guaranteed stay at cycling's top table.
