In a statement received by us from the governing body, the UCI said:
"After in-depth examination, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) announced today that onboard cameras on helmets shall be mounted solely on detachable visors/peaks that have been provided by the helmet manufacturer for use with the helmet in question.
This provisional authorisation will stand until tests currently being carried out by helmet manufacturers satisfy them that the onboard cameras in no way interfere with the functionality of the helmets.
The provisional authorisation applies to competitions and training sessions for the mountain bike and BMX disciplines at UCI-registered events. With regards to the UCI World Cups, it will enter into force at Fort William, (Great Britain) for the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup presented by Shimano and at Angelholm (Sweden) for the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup."
This application of camera mounting will continue to be banned at UCI Downhill and BMX events.
