Astana license still up in the air

http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/asta...tra-guarantees

Seems UCI is still very concerned that the riders actually get paid...

Astana keeps ProTour licence and Contador

However!

Quote:
the UCI requested the Kazakh team to provide an additional bank guarantee ...

"This request is not connected ... to the registration procedure for UCI ProTeams …but to the request for the withdrawal of the Astana licence that would have to be reactivated if the bank guarantee is not provided. The UCI awaits this bank guarantee and is confident it will be provided soon."
In other words, if the guarantee isn't forthcoming, the license is toast. So this is still up in the air.



Film at 11.
