On a positive note, the UCI expressed pleasure in response to the news that German companies T-Mobile and Milram have decided to continue their commitment to cycling despite difficult times for the sport in Germany recently.

"The UCI congratulates both companies for their responsible attitude and solidarity towards the whole family of cycling," said a UCI statement Friday. "The trust they have shown represents a solid basis upon which to support the common efforts of all stakeholders in cycling to progress towards a more stable future."

The UCI statement called T-Mobile and Milram "very important partners," especially in light of the fact that Germany will host the UCI Road World Championships in September.

"The decisions of T-Mobile and Milram are a further signal of the determination with which cycling is battling a very unfavourable situation," said Pat McQuaid. He added rather positively that he was "convinced that the World Championships in Stuttgart will allow our magnificent sport to restore its image, both in Germany and the rest of the world."
