According to JB, the non-payment of salaries is all about the transfer from one company to another. In short, the Kazakh Cycling Fed hates Marc Biver and won't give him money for salaries, but they'll pay the individuals directly. The critical piece is that when JB takes over, there'll be no missing salaries. So say the CN notes. Good news... can you imagine things getting any worse than they are in the sport? The image of the Tour champion getting stiffed next year wasn't going to be pretty. Anyway, it doesn't sound like a problem for anyone besides Biver.
