Back in December, the UCI released a list of "Elite" MTB Teams for the 2011 season.  Just a few days ago, a list of UCI Elite Team riders was published on the UCI website.

The rider list includes a few notable rider additions that were not yet publicly announced, as well as a preview of a few 2011 team jerseys (we suspect several of them still need to be updated). Nothing is official until we get a press release...

What does it mean to be a UCI "Elite" Team?  At the most basic level, they will be obliged to enter at least one rider in each round of the 2011 MTB World Cup, which gets under way in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, on April 23rd. In return, the teams will benefit from numerous advantages including free entry in the World Cup events and races on the UCI Calendar.

Note that this list of riders is only for "Elite" Teams, so you'll notice that several regular UCI Pro Teams are missing from the lineup.  We expect those to also be released soon and will keep you posted when it happens.
