PRO CYCLISTS DEMAND THESE EXTRA SAFETY REGULATIONS

There have been a number of incidents over the past 12 months in UCI sanctioned races that have seriously threatened the safety of riders. Many of those have ended with riders in ambulances, while one in particular has left a rider in a coma for six months and severe brain damage.

As a result of these serious incidents, the professional riders union has made demands of the UCI for 2017 that will help improve the safety of riders in the peleton.
