Every year the UCI decides the basic structure and team format for UCI teams, but it is the national federation that manages the process.

Domestic Elite Teams
In an effort to better organize the top level of road cycling in the United States, USA Cycling created a category of road teams that is above a club but not yet a UCI-registered team. These Domestic Elite Teams offer a stepping stone to the professional level and better solidify the position of teams competing at the Pro Road Tour level. Both men's and women's teams wishing to accrue team points in the PRT series must register as a Domestic Elite Team or as a UCI-registered team.
