What's the point?

Dear UCI

For heaven's sake, I invest hours trying to stay awake throught the TourDayFrance stage coverage, and each time my enthusiasm is drummed up for new front men one of them is disqualified.

At least wait until the end like last time.

love,

Ed

At least all of this has many more now publicly railing against the Pro Tour. For many reasons (see Cyclingnews). That can only be a good thing.

I suppose that is true. However, picking on individual riders is only half the battle. The pressures and rewards are so great, and I'm convinced that these issues are team management based as a result.
