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.
everything about UCI rules appears to be fluid. Some are invented as we go along, others bend to suit a certain situation and finally some are simply ignored.

That's the thing. Pat is not consistent at the moment, so who knows whether the UCI will stick with that decision (and I can imagine a fight from Riis if they do) or will go in a different direction.

This is just a big mess at the moment.

Does Riis have a leg to stand on though?

to the bolded...created by the uci's idiotic president and it's self-professed transparency which was anything but transparent

to me this was a case of prejudice and politics from get-go. to wrap the licensing commission's decision in the ethical cloth was just another case of the uci corruption and incompetence.

phat must go !

Probably not, but that won't necessarily stop him trying.

Having the licence taken away after already taking part in a pro tour event as a pro tour team would really hurt.

I think Tinkoff might also have some input on any fight if Saxo are axed.

Any team kicked out now would fight.
A lot of races are overdue for wildcard aplications, so it would basically destroy that teams whole season, with no chance of recovery.
In my opinion to kick a team out now would basically destroy it.

Actually this is a golden chance for UCI to kick Riis and the saxo boys out of the sport.
