Just so happens to be that without ASO there is no ProTour. UCI knows this.

It's like an investor that has 60% of the stakes in a company.

- Roubaix
- LBL
- FW
- Tour de France
- They own a large part of Unipublic, the Vuelta organizers.
- Paris-Nice
- Dauphiné Liberé

He would be better in the Giro anyway imo.

Not needed for the TdF this time around. Enough serious players lined up there already.

Oleg Tinkov ‏@olegtinkov
I am sad for @katushacycling , stupid. As I mentioned before, UCI need to be modernize and changed. Happy for @TeamSaxoTinkoff though.

First of all I would like to know what the exact reason was for rejecting Katushas license. Secondly, Katushas license was rejected; Argos was not choosen over Katusha.

I like the Argos way of cycling, which helps cycling towards a cleaner sport. I really hope they'll ride well next season.

While I have no great love for Katusha, I am curious as to why they were denied a license.

Perhaps the presence of Ekimov had something to do with it?
