Astana to keep World Tour licence
23 Apr 2015 20:08
Astana, the team of 2014 Tour de France winner Vincenzo Nibali, will keep their World Tour licence for 2015 after UCI president Brian Cookson failed in his bid to have it revoked following a series of doping offences.
In February the UCI asked the Independent Licence Commission to revoke the licence following an independent audit into the team's procedures, which came after a number of anti-doping infringements by Astana and their feeder team.
But instead the Licence Commission asked the Institute of Sport Sciences at the University of Lausanne (ISSUL) to devise a series of measures to be placed on the team, under which they can retain their licence.
