In reply to Minneconjou Sioux: I've seen things about the world series cycling (apparently break away, but still thoroughly intertwined with the UCI so I don't know how that works) and really can't say I like it.
Throughout the current season you get a huge variety of one day and stage races that require teams and riders to have different strengths and tactics. The type of rider who is going to be strong on Paris-Roubaix is different to who may take Vuelta a Espana, and the way they are targeted need to be different.
WSC seems to be about a series of carbon copy mini stage races that will end up with a much narrower set of tactics and victorious riders, and will remove a lot of appeal of pro cycling.
I don't disagree that something needs to be done about the UCI and its recent history, but I don't think this depressing suggestion is it. There are other aspects of the proposals I don't like, but this is the most fundamental.
