    More about this race ...

    The riders protested against the radio ban during this race by using radios. For this reason, the UCI decided to not officially take the results of this race into account.

    This protest was organised by the AIGCP (Association Internationale des Groupes Cyclistes Professionnelles) which published a press release about this protest saying: Today the AIGCP organized various protests regarding the ban of radio communication. While we regret that action was required, we feel that our collaborative action was our last resort.

    The radio ban is one rule that we disagree with, it is only part of the greater issue. The AIGCP takes great issue with the fact that the legislation governing cycling is decided upon without sufficient input from the teams, and with zero vote when new rules come to a final decision in the UCI management committee.

    Teams represent the largest segment in terms of revenue and employees in professional cycling. We contribute over 5M to the UCI annually in licensing fees and anti-doping contributions. We feel that we should be represented accordingly.

    It is not the desire of the teams to be disruptive or negative. However, we do need to be strong and unified until we garner the correct representation in the governance of our sport.

    We will not stand for rules being imposed on us without appropriate representation. As the largest shareholder in professional cycling, we ask for nothing more than to be a part of democratic governance.

  1. Deze wedstrijd die eigenlijk als de ronde van Mallorca (Vuelta-Challenge a Mallorca) gekend staat, is een zeer hoogstaande kompetitie, die uit 5 luiken bestaat, de trofeos, en waarbij men kan zien welke renners reeds in forme steken !
    Niveau (ook toeristisch, als het niet sneeuwt) is gelijkwaardig aan de ronde van
    Spanje !
