Kelme to be Team 22 for Tour?

Cyclingnews.com says Comunidad Valenciana-Kelme “has a place waiting” in the Tour. Organizers announced only 21 teams, leaving a place available for a provisional spot.

The story quotes Comunidad Valenciana-Kelme director Vicente Belda:

“The problem is not a sporting problem, and doesn't concern the presence or absence of Alejandro Valverde,” Belda commented, alluding to the fact that Valverde wouldn't necessarily ride the Tour. “It's a bureaucratic issue, and has to do with certain of my riders' licenses with the UCI. It's possible that this could all be resolved as early as today.”
