Tonight, at 10PM Sydney time, the UCI will hand down its decision in regards to the USADA reasoned decision.
Basically only two things can happen. The UCI can accept the report or appeal it to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
So many varied opinions on the interwebs, and I don’t consider myself wise enough to even have a stab at what will happen, but either way it will be a pivotal day for the sport we love.
Leaving aside the speculation about what decision will be made, how the sport moves forward with Pat McQuaid at the helm is beyond me. What wont be a surprise is how McQuaid and to some degree, the Honourary el supremo, Hein Verbruggen, manage to stay in their current roles. If they do intend to stick around, it will be interesting how they justify it.
Don’t be surprised if you see some of this action though.
