by CyclingTips

Team Sky head David Brailsford praised UCI president Brian Cookson’s efforts to come away with a compromise with the ASO, despite some teams that have said they are unhappy with the results.

“A little bit of compromise and collaborative approach is the best way,” Brailsford said speaking to media at the Tour de France.

“If you try to change too quickly, and the whole thing gets blocked. Thankfully, Brian (Cookson) and the guys at ASO have shown that flexibility. A massive part of leadership is being able to step back, and take another look.”

Before the compromise the two sides were heading towards what many were calling a cycling civil war.

“We’ve avoided that,” Brailsford said. “Fairplay to Brian. One of Brian’s attributes, he will stop and think, and commonsense will prevail. I think it was a wise move.”
