The rider and the UCI are still waiting on CAS to set a date for the case to be heard, but Tinkoff Saxo general manager Stefano Feltrin believes that the hold-up is being caused by the sport’s governing body.
“Basically we don’t know about the date for the hearing and that’s the real truth when it comes to because we’re left with no information,” Feltrin told Cyclingnews.
It’s unfortunate that the UCI are taking so long to file an appeal. They’re using all their remedies but it’s not in the best interest of the sport. At this point I have no idea when it could take place. The UCI need to file all their documents and they’re still doing this. Then CAS will set a date for the hearing.”
