ASO vs UCI, whoever wins , riders lose.

UPDATED Looks like UCI has some claws...

4 months ago...while riding the word out is Astana is going to get banned.

Due to the fact of KCF owner of Astana team giving only 1 year ban for Vino's goodwill dope to TDF and the year before that Astana's Floyd Landis's case.

However thinking for this standpoint sponsors isnt directly responsible and with the re-org for anti doping structure and tighter restriction in Astana, CSC , Robobank and such. Astana should have their stand on why they should be invited.Thus ASO

(a) does not like Bruyneel; (b) can carry a grudge; (c) No healing

Association of Professional Cyclists (CPA) cant do jack shit.As nearly all pro tour team isnt goona stand behind Astana ( most unlikely )

The only wild card now is to talk to UCI,But what can UCI do ?
as TDF is out of the Protour.UCI is practically lame.

Now probable ASO stand is to let Astana to be in its 2nd ranked tours

lets see whats JB game plan..
