Maybe the ASO shaped the list of license receivers.

Bolded riders became pretty good. I also want to bold Quintana, but let's wait a bit longer. Obviously didn't include the last 2 Avenir winners because they have yet to prove themselves.
Now Etxebarria did get a podium in one of the Ardennes classics, one of the best showings up to that point of any Spanish rider. That has to count for something.

Perhaps the presence of Ekimov had something to do with it?
this is 100% what I'm thinking and the fact they were so quiet when he's named and everything in the usada reports.

Great, now we get to see Argos stink up any race with a mountain in it even worse than GreenEdge. All year long.

At least Greenedge get guys in the break, like Meyer and Clarke in this years Vuelta.

Do Argos have anyone that can do that? Think of them as the Mountain equivalent of Euskaltel in the classics

Default UCI blindsiding stakeholders

What happens to the riders in all this? Do they suddenly find themselves locked into a contract with a pro continental team, or can they hunt for a new team at the worst time of year? And what do the sponsors think of the sudden and unpredictable reverse on their investment?

A system which leaves everyone guessing until the last minute is inexcusable. There needs to be clear, predictable criteria for pro tour team licences, so riders don't get horrible surprises and the sponsors aren't ****ed off!

When it comes to running the sport, those fickle gits in the UCI are doing it wrong!
