This really is a surprise. Have the UCI announced that they will disclose the reasons why to the public?

No, the full details of the Padova investigation have not yet been disclosed to CONI. When that comes in Scarponi's situation could dramatically change for the worse, from what I've read.

If this really was financial rather than ethical or sporting reasons, surely UCI would have accepted 17 teams and given Katusha a chance to provide more evidence - or possibly given them a final deadline like Christina Watches.
Could this all just be a clever plot by the UCI to get a 19th team into the ProTour? If the reason is financial and Katusha can demonstrate they are sound, UCI will be forced to accept them, and they have already committed places to 18 teams.

I'm thinking that'll be the solution for the UCI 'screw up'.

BMW, Froomey and J-ROD each lead one GT and each
ride support in one GT. And with Greg Lemond as a DS,
Sky is set to dominate another year.
Wiggins will be out of shape and lacking motivation, Froome will be overmatched facing a hungry Contador who will be bringing the pain and Purito will hopefully maintain his senses and sign with some other team.:D

LOL! :D, Purito would never sign with Sky, and I doubt Sky would ever sign him. The team already has too many leaders.
I doubt Sky could offer Purito the thing required for him to join Sky, (the race leadership, not the money) if they did I am sure he would jump at the chance.

I am not sure Sky would want another leader to, for me they primarily want to develop you British talent, and he would just close doors to this, the type of riders Sky want are road leaders who can pass on experience and young talent

2012's best rider and second best team now in the 2nd division.

Rules are gone. UCI members' personal opinions decide the World Tour teams? :eek:

And Argos-Shimano.... as sponsor of UCI - of course they would be selected. I'm sure UCI got a great Christmas gift from Shimano?

Cycling is screwed - we have to do something.
