Further to the last proposals of the Mountain Bike Commission, the UCI Management Committee has approved the following rules modifications:

1) Removal of the requirement to have a minimum of 1 UCI point to enter the World Cup.

2) Race numbers will be allocated for the whole year.

3) Second chance given to Elites who will qualify automatically in case of fall or of an equipment problem. (Note: we assume that this means for Downhill and 4X, however, the UCI has provided no further clarification)

Modification règlement MTB

Suite aux dernières propositions de la Commission Mountain Bike, le Comité Directeur de l'UCI approuve les modifications suivantes :

1) Suppression de la nécessité d'avoir au minimum 1 point UCI pour participer à la Coupe du Monde

2) Attribution de numéros de dossards à l'année

3) Repêchage des Elites lors des épreuves de Coupe du Monde

Nous vous remercions de votre attention à ce qui précède et vous présentons nos salutations les meilleures.
