Team Rock Racing has been denied a professional continental license, and the UCI has yet to make a comment on why. The official statement was simply “the Management Committee rejected the registration of the US team Rock Racing.” Team owner Michael ball or other management have yet to comment as well. None of the team have commented either, but at least one member said he doesn’t know why the team wasn’t approved. Jose Enrique Gutierrez told Cyclismag.com “I am very disappointed. As a team we were all very excited by moving up.” The Website also said that other riders are refusing to comment, perhaps waiting until team management comments.
