I've scoured the rules of participation in the Tour and checked the UCI's website and I can't find a regulation, rule or by-law that any rider needs the permission of Fabian Cancellara or even a letter from Cancellara's mother for permission to race in the way they see fit. After winning the opening stage and having six days in yellow it appears Cancellara is the only one entitled to any glory. What an oaf. And the same goes for you too, Hincapie. Maybe the weight of carrying two race radios, one for Columbia and one for Astana was the reason you got dropped on the climb.
