The Belgian cycling federation has come out in support of the federations of France, Spain and Italy in their opposition to the UCI's ProTour, reports Sportwereld.be. Last Sunday, the latter three federations issued a communiqué stating their belief that the ProTour should end.

"We also find that there has to be a new and open system within the UCI for the upper layer under the ProTeams, but the ProTour is a stillborn child," said Belgian federation chairman Laurent De Backer.
