Monday's team walk-out at a UCI meeting held in Brussels was the biggest indication yet that the sport could face the possibility of a breakaway league.

In this exclusive video, UCI President Pat McQuaid talks to Cyclingnews about the walk-out, the latest developments between the sport's governing body and the AIGCP and his frustration with the situation.
