The official presentation of the Russian team «Katusha» will be held on the 19th of December in the Italian city of Brescia.
Despite the complex and ambiguous situation resulting from the unjustified decision of the International Cycling Union (UCI) License Commission concerning the license prolongation of the only Russian World Tour team «Katusha», the 2013 team roster is going to be represented to the world publicity.
The official presentation of the second team in the world ranking, will be held on the 19th of December 2012 in the historical center of the Italian city of Brescia, not far from the team base. The Katusha Team-2013 event will be held in the old historical Palace named Palazzo della Loggia, which was kindly offered for the team presentation by the mayor of the city of Brescia Mr. Adriano Paroli. The team spirit of Katusha is stronger than ever, and the presentation will be attended by all the riders of the new Katusha-2013 roster, all sport directors, management and also the representatives of the team sponsors and partners of Katusha and the Russian global cycling project. The Russian Katusha is preparing for one of the most important and exciting team events and is determined to fight until the very end and use all available means to defend its legitimate right to be a part of the first division. Besides Katusha hopes to obtain a correct and reasonable response from the UCI License Committee concerning the true reasons of their decision in the nearest few days.
