UCI blocks grand tour trophy

The UCI ProTour Council has decided not to sanction the organisation of a Trophée des Trois Grands Tours by ASO, RCS and Unipublic. Such a blockade was expected.

The UCI said the breakaway project "does not respect the principles of the road cycling reform as introduced by the UCI. In particular, this project lies on a financial approach which is counter-productive, and which would harm the visibility of the cycling calendar, demonstrating moreover, a lack of responsibility towards cycling as a whole."

The UCI never goes in for a simple 'no', does it?

"In accordance with article 1.2.026 of the UCI cycling regulations, the UCI does not consequently authorise the organisation of a Trophée des Trois Grands Tours.

"The UCI would like to remind that within the frame of the 2006 UCI ProTour, the position of ASO, RCS and Unipublic will be the same as in 2005 :

- registration of events on the 2006 UCI ProTour calendar,

- mandatory participation for the 20 UCI ProTeams to all events of the UCI ProTour,

- attribution of UCI ProTour points in accordance with the point scale as foreseen by the rules."

The gauntlet has once again been thrown down.
