ACCPI's Pozzato reacts to UCI's request

Filippo Pozzato, winner of the 2006 Milano-Sanremo and 2007 Omloop Het Volk, reacted to the decision by the UCI to require all ProTour riders to sign an anti-doping agreement prior to the Tour de France. The vice president of the Association of Italian professional riders (ACCPI) noted that the riders would decide in the coming days on how to react.

"Is it something fair or passes on a level below? The importance is yet one more time the UCI is taking us for a ride. Our opinion, the actors in their play, does not count for anything," said 'Pippo,' who refused to mince his words, to La Gazzetta dello Sport. "We will decide what position to take."
