Something tells me the ethical reasons let Katusha down... Which, in many ways, sounds reasonable.

Tinkov was never found of Katusha, maybe he has something to do with this.

So the UCI invents a stupid World Tour league and then keeps the former winner from it? Genius.

the Inner Ring @inrng
"For those suggesting Katusha rejected over ethics, UCI says team can still apply for second division licence which suggests smaller problems

Sergi López-Egea @sergi_lopezegea
"El despido del manager Holczer de Katusha e informaciones pasadas por este a UCI sobre irregularidades financieras ha sido la causa exclusion"

Apperently firing Holczer and financial irregularities are the cause.

I would like to see the WT eliminated - let race organizers decide which teams to invite. Teams could still be ranked based on their results.

Unexpected, but won't harm them that much.
Vuelta certain, Giro probable, Spanish week calendar certain, Northern spring campaign - harmless, Tour - painful loss.
Although I'm not sure how ambitious they'd be in the Tour. Late stage, if nothing else.
