On 1st August 2006, the UCI introduced a permanent number system for Men and Women Elite. With this system, riders can choose a “career number”, which they have the exclusive right to use for their entire Elite career. This will give riders a possibility to market themselves and to give media and spectators an easy way to identify riders. Now for the 11th time, Elite riders are given an opportunity to apply for a number that is not yet in use.
Any rider who has a number that has expired (not scored any UCI points in the last season) will become vacant again. Such riders may re-apply for their number, although it will be subject to the normal procedure mentioned in the UCI rulebook, § 10 International permanent race number system, (art. 6.1.073 to 6.1.076).
The announcement of confirmed UCI Career Numbers will happen in due-course.
