Moser and Bugno criticize UCI's proposal

"It is a proposal that goes against all rights," said Francesco Moser, head of the Association of Professional Cyclists (CPA), in response to yesterday's decision by the UCI to require all ProTour riders to sign an anti-doping agreement.

The Italian argued for the riders' rights and he pointed out that the teams' management never pays the price for doping. "The riders are the only ones that ever pay but it is not true that it is only them at fault," he stated in La Gazzetta dello Sport. "Moreover, it is betrayal."
