- shoe covers to be banned from October 2012
- clothing must be open mesh textile
- no taping of bolt holes other than on a disk
- forearm must be horizontal in aero position
- hands must be on the ends of the extensions in aero position

exactly how is this meant to address any problem in professional cycling? :noidea:

Another plus in favour of aero road frames :smartass:

(another who's read the Tour Test thread will understand the above)

More and more ridiculous rules being added. I hope this breakaway league gets off real quick.

But.. If i line up in a normal UCI race I'm going to be disqualified because my caad10 (and many other bikes) has no UCI approval thingy?
Well, the field will be a lot smaller for sure..

No because the CAAD was made before the new rules came in so it is exempt.

And the breakaway league? Yawn. It is going to be ten 4 day races all exactly the same as each other.

With UCI's record Di2 is next since it gives the competitor an unfair advantage of shifting from multiple points even though in most tt's you only shift a few times. :lol:

This is ridiculous. I don't wear shoe covers for the aero advantage, i wear them because my shoes don't match my team strip...

The regulation for overshoes is only for indoors track racing.

Yep. I took the time to read the document. Seems the only major major hiccup for everything is the banning of the removal of lawyer tabs.

The wheel approval process is possibly another one.

"From 1 October 2012, the use of shoe covers will be prohibited during events on a covered track"

Doesn't that mean that it only applies for track events? Or have I missed something here?

EDIT: Only for track events, thanks :)

For outdoor events, overshoes are considered non-essential clothing and only allowed at the discretion of the commissaire, e.g. in bad weather?

How does a commissaire know when my feet are cold? Will they be forcing people to take undervests off?

I saw a couple of young ladies on mountain bikes at the weekend wearing plenty of non-essential clothing!! Might be an upside to this rule after all.

They'll know! ;)

1.3.033
It is forbidden to wear non-essential items of clothing or items designed to influence the performances
of a rider such as reducing air resistance or modifying the body of the rider (compression,
stretching, support).

Items of clothing or equipment may be considered essential where weather conditions make them
appropriate for the safety or the health of the rider. In this case, the nature and texture of the clothing
or equipment must be clearly and solely justified by the need to protect the rider from bad
weather conditions. Discretion in this respect is left to the race commissaires.

I wonder whether females will still be able to wear bras given they
a. provide support for the rider; and
b. reduce air resistance?

How can they prove it's non-essential?


And suffer from Raynaud's, heaven forbid one of them try and tell me my shoe covers are non-essential.
