As far as the administrative concern goes, Katusha has thrice changed managers in just as many years. Might there have been some perplexity over this at UCI and Ernst&Young? In any case the focal point could be ethical, since the team is now conducted since October 8 by Viatcheslav Ekimov, once among the most faithful to Lance Armstrong at US Postal and then Discovery. Yet above all among those wearing the Katusha uniform are Denis Menchov, Mikhail Ignatiev, Vladimir Gusev and Alexander Kolobnev, who are cited among those in Benedetto Roberti's Padova doping investigation. In light of USADA, might the UCI simply desire to avert further bad press out of an eventual Padova scenario?
Wouldn't the UCI have the bad press issue with Katusha as a Pro Continental Team? Relegating them to the lower level doesn't diminish the potential bad press IMO.

Everything is in light of the gravity of the situation revolving around the Armstrong case, or so it would seem, of which Lampre is not a factor. This appears to be politicized politics. The economic cause seems, therefore, politically motivated.

UCI corruption strikes again, SAXO and all questions over them certainly more than Katusha whos backer has been doing stuff UCI did not like.

LOL! , Purito would never sign with Sky, and I doubt Sky would ever sign him. The team already has too many leaders.
