UCI suspends USAC over Radio Usage???

This entry was posted in Racing on by .

Here is a link to a Velonews article about the UCI threatening the USAC with suspension over the use of radios in the United States. Wow. Did those guys at the USAC think that there wouldn’t be any repercussions from their single-mindedness.

I still haven’t seen anywhere that the UCI has sued Floyd yet. But, this is different. I’d bet they do exactly what they say in their “nasty” letter and follow up on this.

I’m still not sure why the USAC decided to take this head on. There are so many more issues that are much more important to American bike racers than allowing a few radios in NRC races. Like getting rid of the rule that more than 50% of the riders on a Domestic Pro Team has to be 27 years old and under. That is pretty much illegal, but no one seems to be too concerned about it. And there are many more things.

Whatever. Someone must have their reasons. We’ll probably find them out eventually.

    Wow, wasn’t aware of the age rule/restriction for USAC Pro teams. Seems un-American to me. How’s that even legal anyway?

    The demagogues that own USAC (Tailwind) and Pat work closely together. Very closely. USAC regularly screws promoters and membership at the UCI’s request.

    The simplest explanation is Tailwind principals just **love** their radios like Phil Dunphy loves his gadgets.


    It’s all speculation from waaay out here.

    @ David: The same way that senior citizens get discounts at stores. The same way that there is a U-23 category that 24 year olds can’t race in. The same way that women can race in open (men’s) races, but men can’t race in women’s races.
