February 3/10 8:51 am - USA Cycling Bans Race Radios


Posted by Editoress on 02/3/10
 

In response to a request from the UCI that radios be banned in all national calendar races, the USCF Board of Trustees met and amended the rule regarding the use of race radios in all USA Cycling sanctioned road and track races. Radios will now be banned in all USA Cycling road and track races.

In 2010, race radios will only be allowed for use by teams and riders in UCI Category HC or Category 1 races in the U.S. per UCI regulations.

Rule 1N6 Pg. 57, which takes effect immediately, now reads:

“Riders may not use radios, telephones, or other such communication devices. No earpieces may be worn. Audio playback devices are expressly forbidden.”

“I would like to thank the USCF Trustees for moving quickly in response to the request we received from the UCI, said Steve Johnson, CEO of USA Cycling. “Although I think the jury is still out regarding the future of radios in our sport, given the current direction being set by the UCI indicating their intent to phase out radio usage across the board, we all agreed that it was important to make this adjustment now rather than later in the season.”
