It's not over until the fat lady sings. :D
In any case, there will be 18 teams, not 19, meaning if KAT is reinstated the WT license process will start again. :eek: KAT should know by Jan. 15, 2013 if they will be receiving its WT license or denied.

"En el caso de que el Tribunal de Arbitraje Deportivo (TAS) acepte el recurso del Katusha por su rechazo y apruebe su registro como equipo WorldTour -la resolución se espera en la primera quincena de enero-, la Comisión de Licencias reiniciará el proceso de admisión a todos los equipos a los que se les ha aplicado una licencia nueva para 2013"

Can't see why this should be a concern of CAS. In the end it's an assessment made by UCI to decide who is to get license. Katusha might find it unfair but no rules have been broken as far as I'm aware of in the process.

On the biciclismo article they mentions that his 4 spanish teammates would follow him but not his masseur.

He even complain about spanish media not giving much space for his results during his 2012, while outside Spain he has much more media attention.

I don't really like the situation with JRod threatening to leave. Business is business though and he has to look out for #1, but Katusha has been good to him.

I don't know how I feel about JRod's chances in the tour. I'd say he has the best chance this year that he has ever had if his form keeps up, but he always has that one bad day. I still would only pick him for 3rd place. The Vuelta format with time bonuses favored him alot more than the Tour format will.

The story is beginning again, just as it did 14 years ago

Nothing new really and it still doesn't reflect well on the UCI and the selection process -> http://www.lequipe.fr/Cyclisme-sur-route/Actualites/Ecarte-a-cause-de-menchov/338315

So one of the most corrupt societies in the world is running a cycling team that has corrupt practices and unethical behaviour ? I have no problem with what the UCI has done even though I think there is more too it than just corruption. The only disappointing thing is that they have not done the same to other teams. If they are serious about cleaning up the sport this is what they should be doing.

MPCC grants Katusha probationary credibility. In the meantime, tomorrow, it's expected some sort of word by CAS on WT license.
