The CyclingNews flashes a "truce" between the ASO and UCI:
The long-running political battle between the UCI and the Grand Tour organisers appears to be moving closer to an end following the announcement on Monday of a new "UCI World Calendar" system.
Under the proposed terms, participation in the 2009 and 2010 Tours de France will be governed by the agreement signed by the teams and ASO on 18 June. From 2011 onwards, the classifications of the UCI World Calendar would confer the right to participate, with either seventeen teams of 9 riders or eighteen teams of eight taking part
Reaction to the announcement can be found here.
Bill Dykes writes about the upcoming Audi Best Buddies Challenge cycling charity ride in which Floyd Landis is apparently taking part.
Pommi unfortunately joins the "injured reserve list". Get well soon!!!
Racejunkie reminds us all of why we should still love cycling, despite all of the recent crap. Thanks for the kind blurb RJ, and yes, just to be able hear Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwin is enough of a reason to still watch cycling!
