Not only in the Netherlands, but El Pistolero always goes to provocations and little jabs when he doesn't get his way. He's just like a little kid...so annoying. Best to ignore ;)

Surely they can't base a disicion on that untill someone is atually found guilty.

I like to imagine the UCI lot sitting around a table trying to come up with a reason as we speak. ;)

Let's get this clear:

- I say Avenir winners usually don't do great later in their pro career.
- I show a list of Avenir winners to prove my point. Most of them barely won anything.
- You go all Calimero on me because of Mollema.
- Mollema has one victory so far.

I didn't even have Mollema in my mind when I made that comment, you give me too much credit. Odd how you only speak of Mollema. Does that mean you agree with me that the other Avenir winners didn't turn out great effectively proving my statement to be correct? :D

Sorry I hurt your feelings, won't do it again. :)

And no you didn't hurt my feelings for mocking Jan Bakelants. I'm not a Calimero like you. :p

Also Arnaud Demare scored 80 WT points in that German "classic"(by which I mean small meaningless race) which helps them big time.

FDJ is french which means they should make it the TDF for it is their national race after all and that should qualify them for a wildcard from ASO but not for the PROTOUR status.

Just so happens to be that without ASO there is no ProTour. UCI knows this.

It's like an investor that has 60% of the stakes in a company.

- Roubaix
- LBL
- FW
- Tour de France
- They own a large part of Unipublic, the Vuelta organizers.
- Paris-Nice
- Dauphiné Liberé

He would be better in the Giro anyway imo.

Not needed for the TdF this time around. Enough serious players lined up there already.

I am sad for @katushacycling , stupid. As I mentioned before, UCI need to be modernize and changed. Happy for @TeamSaxoTinkoff though.

Useless Corrupt Incompetent :mad: ...that is all.




Who's up for a letter writing campaign, I say we petition UCI to kick Argos out, and give Katusha their spot.

First of all I would like to know what the exact reason was for rejecting Katushas license. Secondly, Katushas license was rejected; Argos was not choosen over Katusha.

I like the Argos way of cycling, which helps cycling towards a cleaner sport. I really hope they'll ride well next season.
