UCI suspends contact with teams organisation

Following the decision of the International Association of Professional Cycling Teams (AIGCP) to recommend that teams participate in Paris-Nice even though it was being held under sanctioning by the French Cycling Federation, the sport's governing body has suspended its relationship with the organisation.

UCI president Pat McQuaid reportedly sent a letter to the team directors announcing it has suspended any official contact with the AIGCP, but said, "I hope that this situation will only be temporary. Meanwhile, the UCI will continue its work by inviting directly managers and sports managers as observers at its meetings."
