UCI are clamping down

Discussion in 'Pro Cycling (Road and Track Racing)' started by steveindenmark, 16 Nov 2018.

  1. The UCI are bringing in stringent new rules for next season. Good to see they are getting tough.

    Here is one of them .

    Here’s what the sock rules say: “Socks and overshoes used in competition may not rise above the height defined by half the distance between the middle of the lateral malleolus and the middle of the fibula head.” :0}

    Not before time!

    Sloppy sockage was really starting to detract from the Tours.

    Once they’ve got that sorted, then maybe they can start addressing the small stuff like team finacing, rider’s wages and drug cheats.

    Yes, but I'm afraid it's too dangerous to go there - full of drugs cartels, I'm told :whistle:

    Long socks look stupid. Excellent rule. Froomy will need to renew his sock drawer.

    Does a longer sock reduce drag ?
