Re: The Italian Spring (Trofeo Laigueglia)
« on: February 12, 2017, 10:09 »
the startlist for Laigueglia today
*bg Unieuro Trevigiani-Hemus 1896
*al Amore e Vita-Selle SMP
*at Tirol Cycling Team

Three foreign Conti teams at a 1.HC race - UCI participation rules (2.1.005) aren't worth the paper they're written on. :fp
If they put in a qualification "races can apply for dispensation from these rules" at least - but there isn't any notion of that.

I know that all three teams have an Italian DS, and that two of them are de facto Italian; but in my opinion, happily disregarding 'unimportant' rules sends a signal that other rules (I'm looking at you, Dark Side) aren't more than 'recommendations' either.
