So J Rod "doesnt agree" with me that phoning Prudhomme is easy? How do you know that?

Because he wants to leave Katusha if they are not in WT ....

That would mean getting to Tour and other WT events might not be as easy ... If it was, he'd stay with the team. and he clearly stated he'd leave if not WT..

I imagine Purito's camp has contacted the race organisers concerning wild cards and he knows where he stands. Whether that be "stay at katusha, we have your back", "any pro-conti team, but katusha or perhaps(insert other disliked team here)", or "if you want these races go protour". The difference is he knows, we don't. So I'd say we'll be able to guess a few wildcards once a move or non move is announced.

Katusha have applied for MPCC membership as an attempt to secure a Tour wild card.
ASO gives prominence to MPCC members when handing out wild cards.

This MPCC is just the usual pathetic attempt to look "clean" imho.
I cant understand why ASO would give so much credit to it.

Because all the French teams are members of it.

The member teams of MPCC do have a reputation of being relatively clean though.

How many teams have been known for being relatively clean beside having issues later on and how many "ethics code" has been writen beside not being followed afterward?

It's like that 4 million deposits for get World Tour license and then ending up selling bus for pay the team wages.

Anyway enough OT.
Hope Purito can find a way out or hopefully Katusha sort it out.

CAS will examine KAT case on Feb. 8.

http://biciciclismo.com/cas/site/not...a.asp?id=59014

In the meantime, Purito claims he has a couple of teams waiting for him. One of them might also hire teammates.

"The team I am most close to signing with hasn’t been mentioned before. It will be quite a surprise."

Who the f*** is Rodriguez that ne needs his personal entourage of FOUR Spaniards (Losada, Florencio, Vicioso, Moreno)? Even Contador has "only" three men (Hernandez, Noval, Paulinho).

Rodriguez is a little bit overrated and hyped.
