Unibet.com illegal in Belgium, too

It looks like Swedish team Unibet.com will not be able to participate in the upcoming Ardennes Classics in Belgium, even if it would try to take legal action against race organiser ASO, who didn't invite the team to the events even though it has ProTour status.

According to Radsportnews, the Belgian public commission on gambling has now issued an official statement that "Unibet organises gambling games for which the company does not have a permission in Belgium. It targets a new group of clients through illegal advertisement, especially through the sponsorship of a cycling team."
