Definitely not beyond the ASO to make surprise decisions when it comes to wildcards. Not saying they would have, but it wouldn't have shocked me if they'd snubbed Contador - wouldn't be the first time.

This. If for example there's serious concerns about their finances or something like that, this is the right thing to do.

Danish papers are guessing at it might be due to Ekimov's position in the team, and his ties to the organization around Armstrong

That's not the same Euskaltel as the one who received a license today though.

Rabobank will still have contractual obligations til 2016 if the cycling team doesn't find a new sponsor. I don't think it will get to that but they can still hold them to that contract.

in the name of transparency the uci keeps everyone in the dark as to their chances in the WT....this is not amateurish, this is straight from the book of professional racketeering...'if you fark with me, i will fark you twice over and you will never have a clue how/when/why'

Really? Then why does the UCI simply pick and choose? Why weren't flags raised for Saxo Bank? Or, does the UCI simply choose to accept Hamilton's testimony when it comes to Armstrong but not when it comes to Riis? I realize that l'affair Armstrong has tainted much of the sport, but it shouldn't temper the UCI's ability to be equitable.

The decision to not grant a license to Katusha seems strange, especially since it comes with no justification.
