Without prejudice to the wider debate, Tony Martin made a bit of a hash of using this opportunity to highlight, what I read into it as being a long standing frustration with the whole Sky/Uci relationship didn't he?Red Rick said:UCI calling Martin to shut up?

In short, he was called by the UCI and told to shut up. Printed a retraction on his Facebook page in English. SKY news running the story also.
Missed a bit of an open goal really by completely misrepresenting the rules as he thought they should be applied, so no surprise that the UCI pushed for a retraction.
