The German cycling federation, the Bund Deutscher Radfahrer (BDR), has called upon the International Cycling Union (UCI) to settle the conflict over the participation of teams in ProTour races. At the same time, the BDR asked the French Cycling Federation (FFC) and the Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO) to conduct their races under international regulations and to register the races with the international calendar, "as the federations in Belgium, Italy and Spain have already done."

"All parties are asked to immediately end their differences, which threaten the existence of professional road cycling," the BDR concluded.
