Now sure: Lotto Soudal take down from WorldTour | Cycling

Lotto-Soudal will not belong to cycling’s top class, the WorldTour, for the first time in its long history next season. A little over a week after the end of the season, this is now official.

The Top 18 in the WorldTour rankings will be confirmed from next year’s WT license. The gap between No. 18 Arkéa-Samsic and No. 19 Lotto-Soudal is 1,170 points after this weekend.

If Lotto continues to win all remaining races, he can still score 875 points. If you end up with many points runners, it is still theoretically possible to score more than 1170 points, but then you have to rely on improbable scenarios – eg utopia – (see below).

Conclusion: Lotto Soudal has already been officially landed. So she will not be allowed to be a part of the WorldTour for the next 3 years.

On the plus side, the team will finish the wildcard standings at 1. As a result, I’ve made sure to take part in all WorldTour races before 2023.

TotalEnergies No. 2 also got the advantage, while Israel-Premier Tech, also landed from the WorldTour, can only start the day’s races from the WorldTour.

This wildcard is only valid for one year, so Lotto-Soudal must do everything in its power to make good again in 2023 in this separate arrangement.

Lotto-Soudal and Israel-Premier Tech will be replaced by Alpecin-Deceuninck and Arkéa-Samsic for the next three years.

Not all 18 WT teams passed the control of the UCI Licensing Committee. Still a life buoy for Lotto-Soudal?

How does the reduction or promotion system work?

As in football, the UCI has introduced a system of ups and downs in cycling.

In 2020, 18 teams were licensed for the WorldTour, the highest category in cycling. This license is valid for 3 years: from 2020 to 2022.

At the end of this season, the UCI will once again distribute 18 WorldTour licenses to the teams that have collected the most points in 2020, 2021 and 2022.

There’s still a safety net for three teams that can’t secure a place in the WorldTour, but they’ve had a solid performance last year.

The two teams (1 WorldTour, 1 procontinental) who fail first can (but must not) participate in all WorldTour races, and Number 3 will receive an invitation to all one-day races in the WorldTour.

It is important to know that only the top 10 points of the year are charged for each team. Leaders and Shadow Leaders in particular must lead the awards.

How many points can be earned in each match?

The largest number of points can be collected in the grand rounds. For example, the eventual winner of the round is rewarded with a minimum of 1,000 points. An overall victory in a Giro or Vuelta gives 850 points.

Stage wins are less interesting. Winning a stage in a Tour, Giro or Vuelta results in the team receiving fewer points than winning an Egmont bike race or Omloop van het Houtland.

The cycling world championships, both on the road and against the clock, are also profitable, with 600 and 350 points respectively for the riders who will run in the rainbow jersey.
