Unibet protests against ProTour

Team Unibet.com has been racing with red armbands at both the Vuelta a Murcia and the Record Driedaagse van West-Vlaanderen. The Belgian Continental Pro team was not given any of the wildcard slots available at the three Grand Tours, and has decided to express its protest in this way, reported Italian tuttobiciweb.

The team has announced its disapproval with the ProTour system and the exclusion of the Grand Tours, which has apparently led to the Belgian management seriously considering to cease their activities by the end of the 2006 season.
