What does UCI have to do with how much an employer pays his employees? You asked what fair wages for a neo pro would be. Someone else responded "what both agreed to", which seemed fair to you. That was what i was responding to. Why are you dragging UCI into this? UCI should apply their rules regardless of what someone gets paid.
The UCI have to do with which buy-outs are recognised as freeing the rider of his obligations with his team and allowing him to sign and race elsewhere.

UCI is not above the law, so when somebody buys out his contract as per actual LAW, UCI will have no choice but recognise the buy out. Conversely, it's not up to UCI to decide a team has to go along with a buy-out, when the team can demand more as per labour law.

And no law privileges a rider with the right to ride UCI races. If he doesn't follow the rules, UCI are free to deny him the right to race.

Can Cian improve his TT abilities? An would Visma put some effort into helping him become much better? I'm just wondering why such a bad result.
He rode in the most rainy conditions, Carapaz had bad ITT in this conditions too. I think this whole thing is way overblown. Cian is notoriously bad bike handler, so in this conditions with dangereous corners he rode it safely, but slowly. He is not good at ITT obviously, but not that bad too

Healy started 9 minutes earlier and was 30 seconds faster.

Walscheid started 4 minutes earlier and was 36 seconds faster.

Del Toro started 9 minutes later and was 38 seconds faster.
 
I don't see the bannable offense. Maybe the offense was archived?
Bannable posts always get deleted simultaneously with the ban being handed out.

I have a lot of other things I’d like to say about this, but since we’re discussing moderation actions here which isn’t allowed either, there really is no point as these posts will all be removed too.
 
Looking at times against Ayuso as a progression or regression in short for Cian:

Vuelta
Distance: 25.8km
Difference: 1m25s

Tirreno
Distance: 10km
Difference: 1m10s

If this was a 25km iTT Cian would have a further time time loss yesterday on Ayuso (GC contender) who by all accounts looked like he has improved his already good TT looking at his position compared to last year.
Yes, you can say the weather but Healy and Walscheid started before him and rode significantly quicker times.

For an already bad TT'r seemed to go better at Bora to date TT wise.
 
Finally banned (again). He's constantly bashing others and baiting users into his belgian guys agenda and acts like a smartass.
If you managed to get banned so many times from a cycling forum (and from different admins), YOU are the problem.

Back to Cian. I'm sure he can do better and it's his first real race with Visma (and TT) so many things are probably off. Plus the weather and maybe even a bad day. Despite that, the way he left the old team (bashing equipment and people working on in), the pressure to do better now is on him.
