Coach Chris Kilmurray Weighs In On 2019 UCI MTB Rulebook Changes
Also note this is now being enforced, it's a rule from 2013 that was inserted: Forbidden races: 1.2.019 No licence holder may participate in an event that has not been included on a national, continental or world calendar or that has not been recognised by a national federation, a continental confederation or the UCI. Depending on the circumstances, a national federation and the UCI may grant special exceptions for particular races or events run in its own country. Particular races or events may consist of: - events organised occasionally only and which do not belong to the organised sports movement; - events whose format is not covered by the UCI regulations. Any national federation intending to grant a special exception must submit its reasoned request to the UCI administration in the beginning of the season and at least two months before the respective event. The decision of the UCI in this respect is final and shall not be subject to appeal. ============================================================ I believe Brook MacDonald and a few more got their wings clipped for doing a street race in Chile? No MTB riders have been sanctioned, just a slap-on-the-wrist letter to explain that they competed in an unsanctioned race and to check before they enter a race that it is on a calendar. The recent Red Bull Hardline had a UCi Commissaire appointed. Will we see riders made to wear rear number boards, National/World Champs jerseys etc.. Food for thought folks..

Red Bull Hardline Riders Announced
Interesting fact that the UCi have appointed a Commissaire to the event. The insurance and liability is still through Red Bull. Are the UCi are getting twitchy regards these style of high profile events that are non UCi sanctioned? From the rule book: 1.2.019: You can’t take part in a race that’s not on the calendar of the UCI or a member federation. This means any rider racing Hardline last year could/should have been disciplined. Any team managers want to put in a dispute, there is a big race this weekend someone told me! If the event is now on the UCi calendar or that of BC (It isn't), surely that means that the event should follow the UCi's gender equality policy. ... 'Women are to be given the same professional opportunities," as stated by the UCI. This also opens up more questions regards the invite list, how did the above riders actually qualify? Anyway, that's me opening up a can of worms for debate, enjoy..
