Giro Problems for Française des Jeux and Predictor Lotto?

By Shane Stokes

While’s general manager Koen Terryn believes that the team no longer faces any question marks over racing in Italy, having proved to RCS Sport that their sponsors have a fully valid licence to practice on Italian soil, he says that two other teams may run into problems if the same standards of law are applied.

"We have shown that we have a licence but that could pose some problems to Française des Jeux and the Lotto team," he said on Friday. "Their sponsors don't actually have a license for that country. I really don’t have anything against those teams, it is not our intention to stop them from riding in the Giro. But that scenario has arisen after our case of today."
