RCS rethinks Milan-San Remo

By Tim Maloney, European editor

Before Saturday's Milan-San Remo, Cyclingnews caught up with Angelo Zomegnan of organizing body RCS and asked him about about the ProTour rule that forced world champion Oscar Friere to wear the ProTour leader's jersey and leave his rainbow jersey in the suitcase. "It's unbelievable!" said Zomegnan. "First of all, I think it's impossible to think that the world champion's jersey, that had been around since 1927, could be replaced by the [ProTour] jersey. It seems to me that [the UCI] is trying to kill the world champion's jersey and replace it with the ProTour jersey. We have already discussed this possibility with the UCI last October and warned them about it." We also asked Zomegnan about the rumors of possible changes to the Milano-Sanremo course, but he didn't comment at that moment.
