Deceuninck-QuickStep rider Michael Mørkøv has expressed his frustration with the UCI, questioning the governing body's role in the sport after the latest in a string of safety-related incidents, while calling the professional riders' association, the CPA, a "worthless organisation".

Morkov was speaking to Cyclingnews after completing stage 2 of the Tour de Wallonie, where he and many other riders complained about unsafe conditions, from an "unbelievable" road lined with potholes, to temporary traffic poles lining the "incredibly dangerous" run-in to Wavre. Race director Christophe Brandt apologized for the poor conditions saying late changed had forced them to use secondary roads.
