The Fundación Ciclista Euskadi has confirmed that it will ride in the category UCI ProTeam in 2020.

The Spanish squad -of which Mikel Landa is president since 2017- will take a step up to the second tier of the professional cycling for the 2020 season. This news comes just days after the Basque Country lost a professional team with the disappearance of Euskadi-Murias due to lack of funding.

"With this statement, we want to inform, after receiving the confirmation from the UCI, that the Fundacion Euskadi will ride in the 2020 season in the UCI ProTeam category," the team said through a statement. "On the next weeks, we will unveil more details about the sports and social aspects of the project."

The dream of the team is to eventually ride in the highest category of cycling, the WorldTour, and take Basque cycling to the place where it was last with Euskatel Euskadi.
