The International Cycling Union has revealed the WorldTour calendar for next season. The schedule is getting back to the 'new normal' except for Australia. Most notably the Tour de France and Vuelta a España in 2022 have three rest days.
The International Cycling Union announced new measures to improve rider safety. The UCI will be stricter if riders 'take dangerous positions on the bike'. The UCI refer to the 'super tuck' and 'puppy paws' positions. Riders will first receive a warning, but after April 1st may be suspended. Here is what the riders think.
The UCI has announced that they'll be looking at dangerous behaviour in a peloton, including adopting dangerous positions on the bike; descending on the top tube. Ed Hood takes us on a retrospective a look at descending, handlebars and the evolution of aerodynamics in modern cycling.
