This should be a year of celebration for cycling and “le Tour” but unfortunately it will be overshadowed by greed and incompetance.

The biggest step forward for cycling at this point would be the resignation of the UCI leadership (if you could call it that).

They either turned a blind eye to what was going on and were complicit or they were totally in the dark and therefore incompetant to lead such an organization.

No matter which of the two you choose, they are not welcome to continue, as far as this fan is concerned. I see them as grasping, greedy individuals in the same league as most of the Olympic hierarchy. Corruption rules in both money and perceived prestige.

Just get the hell out of the way boys and allow the rest of us to salvage what used to be a great sporting showcase.
