All the teams must just stand united and demand TV monies. It's totally ridiculous that ASO receives all of it for the TDF. 

 

I did find this part interesting though, " push to require provisionary suspensions in the wake of adverse analytical findings and anti-doping violations"

Obviously it's because Lappies had to backtrack on Froome. But here is the thing, IF the report stating that around 300 cyclist had AFF's against them since 2015 , will there be a peloton left?

Honestly as long as the rules are the same for everyone all the time I don't mind this suggested rule change AFTER the funding issues are sorted out!!

for me the missing link in the financial package is France gov/tourism. They get all this promotion for free, and it is a huge indirect benefit to the country.

The host towns/cities have to pay ASO a boat load to host the race..ASO are smiling all the way.

do towns pay to have the race go through them? And are there "anchor tenants" who don't pay such as Alp d Huez for instance.

Start and finish towns pay to host the TDF..

I wouldn't think that you pay for the TDF just just ride through though..but almal k@k en betaal...and of course grand depart hosting fee is a lot more.

Ban some team radios as well and we can have some proper entertainment.
