UCI mountain bike teams can be classified as being strictly for a particular discipline — cross-country or gravity — or can be a combination of more than one. If it is strictly a gravity team, then the team must have a minimum of two riders and up to a maximum of 10 riders. If the team is a cross-country or any combination of disciplines, it must have a minimum of three riders and a maximum of 10 riders.
A rider may not be the team manager or any other team staff member. There must be a team manager listed for the team.
A team must be classified as a Domestic Pro Team in order to accrue points on the Pro MTB Cross-country Tour (Pro XCT) or before they can become a UCI team.
There is a registration fee payable to the UCI of 1,500 Euros, which must be paid by January 15, 2014. The fee payable to USA Cycling is $250, which must be received after the UCI has accepted the team. The USA Cycling fee is due no later than Feburary 15.

Materials Needed for Registration
To register a mountain bike team with the UCI, you need to submit several documents as listed below:
- A letter of approval from USA Cycling (Word doc). Please adapt this template to your team and email it to email@example.com. We will then sign and stamp it and get it back to you for submission.
- MTB Domestic Pro Team Membership Application (PDF)
- UCI MTB Team Registration Form (Word doc)
- A color graphic design of your jersey in GIF or JPEG format with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi.
- A copy of each rider’s contract. Per UCI rule (article 4.10.024), the model contract (Word doc) between a rider and a UCI MTB team must be used.
USA Cycling also needs an electronic copy of your UCI registration form once you have it all filled out.
