The Union Cycliste International licences teams worldwide to participate in international cycling competitions. In the mountain bike (off-road) discipline there are two levels of international teams – UCI Elite MTB Team and UCI MTB Team.
UCI Elite MTB Teams are selected from the top 15 mountain bike teams in the world. This is the premier league of world MTB cycling.
The second level are the UCI MTB Teams. Our team is the first ever to qualify as a UCI MTB Team from Africa 2 (46 developing African nations with the exception of South Africa, which is considered as Africa 1).
