Vital Concept Cycling Club, which will take on its first season in 2018, asked to be part of the MPCC. The breton team will become part of the 21 Pro Continental teams belonging to the movement.

Basque team Murias-Euskadi, newly promoted to the UCI Pro Continental ranks, has decided to make another significant jump: to join the MPCC.

Over the 12 last Grand Tours, the MPCC identified all of the riders that had previously been suspended for using banned products among the 198 riders at the start. It has now been more than 2 years that no rider from a MPCC team has been identified as one of those riders.
