Those TT's are therefore not registered to this day and cannot participate to races on the international calendar.
If records received by January 31st still do not comply with the rules, their candidature will definitely be rejected.
The Teams concerned are the following:
Amore e Vita - Beretta (POL)
Antarte - Rota dos Mòveis (POR)
BigMat - Auber (FRA)
MBK - Oktos (FRA)
Team Index (ITA)
Team Scanavino (ITA)
Athlete accommodations available in sunny San Diego, California. This is a very popular area for cyclists and triathletes from around the world to spend the winter training. Many world class athletes spend the winter here training because of the warm weather, world class cycling and running conditions, access to pools and gyms etc.
I would like to make a room in my home available for rent to an athlete for anywhere from 2 weeks to 3 months. My home is on the beach in an upscale community with many amenities including a pool, tennis courts, Jacuzzi, etc.
