In a story that escaped me, it seems that the UCI is calling mom in to try to get a resolution to the ingoing tug of war between the ProTour and the Grand Tours.
Over in the Tour de France blog is a report that states that the UCI is planning on calling on the European Commission to settle the dispute on whether the Grand Tours have the right to organize their own races.
I guess the UCI feels that the EC has the competencies required to come to a decision. After all, the EC has been smacking around the tech companies such as Microsoft, Sun, and others for the past few years.
Pardon the pun but this dispute would be child’s play.
