ACCPI questions riders' participation
Yesterday, Angelo Zomegnan, events director of RCS Sport, sent a second letter to UCI President Pat McQuaid. The head of the Giro d'Italia followed up on his letter of May 4 ("Now it is the turn of the UCI ... to take suitable responsibility and make it known who can race and who can not."), and asked the Irishman for clarification..
Zomegnan still does not possess the official list of riders involved in Operación Puerto. He expressed his concerns that the UCI was not being considerate to the Giro's needs, including the secondary companies that help support the three week tour.
Association of Italian professional riders (ACCPI) also sent a letter to the UCI. Its complaint was that there are some cyclists barred from riding by their federations while riders from other nations continue to ride.
