Cycling Academy reaffirmed last night that it has completed all the technical requirements and is expecting the UCI to approve its application to race at the Pro Continental level for 2017.

“A week from now we will complete the roster (for 2017) and we are certain we will have a strong, balanced mix of young and veteran riders who can take the lead, and inspire our younger riders.” The newly added riders were chosen based on their talent and experience, designed around stage wins and success at one day races.

The team .... has set for itself a very challenging race schedule for the upcoming 2017 season, including: Milan San Remo, Tour of Flanders, Amstel Gold Race, Tour of California and the Tour of Great Britain.

Interesting that they say "designed around stage wins and success at one day races". That could just be Pez's choice of words, but does it mean a lesser interest in GC action?

California should be a gimme now for an invite, ToB should  be a goer too, but the others seems very ambitious. Maybe MSR is the best chance of that big wildcard.
