As long as we don't get something even more ridiculous like World series I am happy

Especulación, puro, basado en el WorldTour actualmente no tiene un mandato UCI pasado 2014. Aún así, me gustaría que ASO y RCS formaría su propia liga.

He says he'd like UCI and RCS to build their own league/program, I guess.

What replaces it is the biggest question. If Bakala's World Series becomes a reality, it will become a borefest.

Personally I wouldn't like divisions and various cycling leagues running concurrently. Hopefully all the parties can get together and forge a comprise and have one Tour/League with the UCI auspices.
