Dimension Data to keep UCI WorldTour spot

By

The bike racing team sponsored by Dimension Data is reportedly set to keep its place on the UCI WorldTour, the top tier road cycling competition.

According to Cyclingnews, the Africa-based team was at risk of losing its WorldTour licence.

The tour is going to be trimmed to 17 teams in 2017, and Dimension Data's low finishing position in this year's season meant it was in line for relegation to the Professional Continental level.

But the exit of two other teams had the effect of leaving Dimension Data among the top 16 that automatically qualify for the WorldTour next year.

Cyclingnews also suggests that Dimension Data's (the company) sponsorship of on-bike data during races may have influenced the apparent decision to have 18 rather than 17 teams in the 2017 WorldTour.

But there is still a plan to move to 16 teams in 2019.
