Oh - and since when does ASO = UCI ????

But anyway - this is speculation. Media dramatics, apparently basing it on the current World Tour or Series or whatever the UCI is currently calling it, having no plans or authorization beyond 2014. Towards the end, they talk about ASO and RCS being strong enough to get together and start their own cycling league. Which, at this point in time, I would welcome.


yeah I meant aso of course. Guess it was clear anyway.
I don't get the rest of your post nor the acronym.

I agree with you on that. I seem to remember that the first 7 teams on the world cup ranking had the right to participate on the biggest races, that imo was a good system cause the ranking could change throughout the season and teams were racing hard to stay in the top seven and also gave race organizers more choice on the teams to invite. I wouldn't mind a world tour with only 15 teams.
