July 16/09 8:43 am - Radio Ban Lifted for TDF Stage 13

Posted by Editoress on 07/16/09

UCI Management Committee accepts the lifting of radio ban for the Vittel-Colmar stage

To put an end to the controversy which is compromising the running of the Tour de France, the International Cycling Union (UCI) Management Committee has decided not to repeat the experiment of a stage without radio communication on Friday 17th July.

The UCI Management Committee, it should be remembered, had given its approval, at the request of the organisers, to ban radios during two stages of the French race (14th and 17th July) as a trial and with a view to evaluating such a measure.

This proposition was discussed and supported by representatives of the riders (CPA), teams (AIGCP) and organisers (AIOCC) who met in Geneva on June 3rd and decided to submit the proposition to the UCI Management Committee.

The UCI pursues the debate on the appropriateness of using radios during racing and will continue to consult all those involved in cycling as far as their use is concerned.
