If they want that why didn't they do it when they got the chance? They kicked out Katusha so they could have FDJ, lotto, argos AND saxo in WT

UCI: WT will have 18 teams.

"Es decir, los expedientes de AG2R La Mondiale, Euskaltel-Euskadi, Blanco Pro Cycling Team (ex Rabobank), Garmin-Sharp, Team Argos-Shimano, Team Saxo-Tinkoff y el propio Katusha volverían a ser valorados y a seis de esos siete les sería concedida una licencia, aclaraban desde la UCI a BiciCiclismo."

Can't we just kick McQuaid out? The best possible option for the sport

2005 provides a good precedent.

Phonak reinstated by CAS and no other teams cut for the year:

If they decide to kick out a team now, that's a huge joke. What are they gonna do with the races where wildcards already have been awarded? That's a lot of (big) races.

And surely the team kicked out will appeal to CAS and then what?

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.
And why is that? Riis and Saxo did something other teams, DS, owners, docs, wifes, mechanics, bus drivers or masseurs didnt do?

Get your head straight, then ban every team and owner in the peloton, no wait, ban cycling in its present form, ban everybody.

AG2R La Mondiale, Euskaltel-Euskadi, Blanco Pro Cycling Team, Garmin-Sharp, Team Argos-Shimano, Team Saxo-Tinkoff and Katusha will be reassessed, and one will be kicked out.

Its called regulating and managing the sport, the UCI way.

Phat better call Hein to see if he can help.
