Represented by its manager Luisa Fernanda Rios, the Colombian team Manzana-Postobon has applied for MPCC membership.

The final step towards full membership will be the vote of the Board on its next meeting in February 2017. The team, promoted to the Pro Continental ranks, will be the only Latin American professional structure of the peloton. Its main leaders are the Vuelta a Espana stage winner Antonio Piedra, the former Giro della Valle d’Aosta winner Bernardo Suaza and the Dutchman Jetse Bol.
