Interesting news item here:
It seems that the UCI are dragging their heels (Should that be pedals?) in registering the US Postal and Domina Vacanze teams. The BBC reported a vague statement from the UCI which reads "These teams have been invited to present explanations on certain points in their files by 8 January 2004"
Are they up to "tricks" to exclude Armstrong & 'Cipollini or do they have some justification for this action? In my opinion it seems fishy, but I'm not in posession of the facts.
