UCI President Pat McQuaid is scheduled to meet with team managers of the 20 ProTour teams on June 19 in Geneva. According to information obtained by the Cologne Express and reported by Radsport-Activ, the meeting will touch on the documents coming out of Spain for Operación Puerto and discuss riders who may not be allowed to start in the Tour de France due to their connection to Dr. Eufemiano Fuentes.

Hans-Michael Holczer, Gerolsteiner team manager, could not confirm the agenda, but thought the meeting related to the "image of cycling," according to the dpa. He asked for proof for any riders involved in the doping scandals and pointed to DNA testing which would have to be done quickly before the July 7th Tour de France start in London.

On June 13, the Association of Professional Cyclists (AIGCP) is scheduled to meet in Lyons.
