The International Cycling Union announced on Thursday that Vincenzo Nibali’s Astana Pro Team will retain their World Tour licence.

The UCI revealed in February that it wanted the sport’s Licence Commission to strip the Kazakh team of their elite status following an investigation into doping after several Astana riders failed tests last season.

The Commission met on Thursday and agreed Astana should retain their license subject to strict monitoring of a number of special measures proposed by experts at the University of Lausanne.

The World Tour license guarantees its holder direct participation to the top races including the Tour de France, the Paris-Roubaix classic and the Giro d’Italia.
