USA Cycling announced today the 21 UCI-sanctioned teams that will compete on the domestic and international scene in 2007.

Next season's lineup includes one UCI ProTour squad, three Professional Continental teams, 13 Continental outfits and four women's teams.

The Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team headlines the roster as the only UCI ProTour team again in 2007 while the Health Net Pro Cycling Team presented by Maxxis and the Navigators Insurance Cycling Team return to the fold as Professional Continental squads. In addition to the returning pair, Team Slipstream powered by Chipotle, formerly TIAA-CREF, makes the jump to Pro Continental status after being a Continental team in 2006.

The 13 Continental teams include 10 incumbents and three new programs.

Returning to the fray in 2007 are AEG-Toshiba-JetNetwork Pro Cycling Team, Colavita/Sutter Home presented by Cooking Light, Jelly Belly Cycling Team, The Jittery Joe's Pro Cycling Team, KodakGallery Pro Cycling Team presented by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., Nerac Pro Cycling, Priority Health Cycling Team presented by Bissell, Rite Aid Pro Cycling, Successful Living presented by Parkpre and Toyota-United Pro Cycling Team.

The three new Continental squads are BMC Racing Team, Kelly Benefit Strategies/Medifast and Rock Racing.

Last year's only American women's UCI squad, T-Mobile, is now registered as a German team in conjunction with the men's program, but four new teams have registered as internationally-sanctioned squads. Cheerwine, Colavita/Sutter Home presented by Cooking Light, Team Lipton and Verducci Breakaway Racing are all UCI-registered teams for 2007.

In the United States, men's teams will compete primarily in the USA Cycling National Racing Calendar (NRC), the inaugural USA Cycling Professional Tour and USA Cycling National Championship races. Women's squads will focus on the NRC which includes several national championship and UCI-sanctioned events.

USA Cycling announced plans this week to pursue the first-ever UCI ProTour event on American soil.
