    McQuaid tries to drive a press release that they have patched up differences with ASO. Teams are contracted with ASO for the TdF through 2010 however. Seems they are trying to structure a world tour calendar and make qualification for the TdF based on a points system. Interestingly there are no quotes or input from ASO on the press release which makes me a little dubious that it is as set in stone as McQuaid makes out. Certainly ASO held a lot of chips at the negotiation table.

    McQuaid should make a deal with the Russians to organise a multi billion rouble tour of Sochi during the tour season, and lure the teams away with lots of cash.

    That is only way in which UCI can remain relevant. :D
