Interestingly (and I think more importantly), they quit because they have no confidence in the UCI's ability to clean up the sport. That is disastrous for the UCI.

Quite frankly, the UCI needs to be completely gutted and rebuilt from scratch.

I would agree. It really looks like you give a cursory attempt at drug testing but really don't want to be serious about it because of how it may impact all the money coming into the sport. Baseball went through the same thing and I'm sure turned their back for the same reason.
