The AIOCC (association of race organisers) proclaimed the UCI's calendar modifications for 2008 to be "unacceptable" according to a press release issued Saturday following a meeting Friday of the AIOCC's Management Committee in Stuttgart.

The AIOCC pointed especially to the new hierarchy of races. "This calendar denies the historical rights of the 'monuments' of cycling and does not bring any solution to the difficulties of the other races which as a result are devalued. The AIOCC is turning to the National Federations so that they will intervene with the UCI to encourage the restoration of a single calendar and comprehensible rules of participation by all to reflect the world's cycling heritage."
