Default Katusha IN

Decision media release just issued to public:

http://www.tas-cas.org/en/infogenera...0-1092-15-1-1/

KATUSHA MANAGEMENT’S APPEAL UPHELD BY THE CAS

Lausanne, 15 February 2013 - The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has upheld the appeal filed by Katusha Management SA (Katusha) against the International Cycling Union (UCI) in relation to Katusha’s application for a license to participate in the UCI World Tour 2013 season.

Further to an investigation by the Auditor appointed by the UCI, the UCI Licensing Commission issued a decision on 10 December 2012 in which it refused Katusha’s application for the UCI World Tour 2013 season. On 20 December 2012, Katusha filed an appeal at the CAS against such decision requesting that it be set aside and that Katusha be registered as a UCI ProTeam for the 2013 season. On 14 January 2013, the UCI has granted the Continental licence to the team.

A CAS hearing was held on 8 February 2013 during which the parties and their representatives were heard by the CAS Panel in charge of this matter: Professor Luigi Fumagalli (Italy), President of the Panel, Mr Luc Argand (Switzerland) and Mr Michele Bernasconi (Switzerland).

In its deliberations following the hearing, the CAS Panel did not reach the same conclusions as the UCI Licensing Commission and decided to uphold the appeal. According to the CAS decision, the application of Katusha Management SA to be registered as a UCI ProTeam for the season 2013 of the UCI World Tour is granted.

In view of the urgency of the matter, the Panel has issued its decision today, without the grounds, which will be issued in writing in a few weeks.

Oh man, what will happen now?

3 options:

1. 19 teams (seems to be against UCI safety limits)
2. 18 teams with one of the current ones to be kicked out
3. Something else?

It just keeps getting better and better for the UCI.

Biopassport: in a shambles
Licencing Commission: in a shambles
President: just shambolic

What next, the whole management committee commits hari kari?

they will go with 19 teams, and one extra team per races to avoid additional suit.

That would seem to be the most logical and least path of resistance.

There are still problems though in relation to the UCI rules and the UCI are hardly predictable, so the next few days to couple of weeks will be interesting.

That means the UCI will be backtracking on what they said initially.
