Inside POC with Martin Söderström
It was a messy situation for everyone involved but POC pretty unfairly got pinned with the blame. They were flexible and tried to be as transparent as possible in resolving the situation, even offering a €1 buyout of the contract to the teams involved... For whatever reason not everyone could follow through with it. Excerpts from the Swedish Cycling Statement: "Question: What has SCF done to resolve the conflict Answer: POC asked us to change our position and waive our policy on August 15, 2017. As a consequence, SCF has presented an offer to the three teams involved to buy the rights for the Championships for a 1 Euro symbolic sum, so that the cyclists involved will be able to compete at the World Championships in Cairns, Australia, 5-10 September 2017." "Question: How does the union's sponsor POC view the situation? Answer: POC have publically stated that they are flexible and want to find a solution to the situation that has arisen (read more). They have already showed this flexibility and at the Olympics in 2016 they offered national cyclists the opportunity to use helmets and glasses from their own sponsors. The SCF has chosen to stick to its own position and interpretation of the UCI rules in the contract discussions and in the dialogue with the athletes and teams."
