Riders fight against punishment for throwing bottles to roadside fans

Riders fight against punishment for throwing bottles to roadside fans



The CPA rider’s association is leading a push by riders to change the new strict UCI rules on the disposal of bottles after Michael Schär (AG2R Citroën Team) and Letizia Borghesi (Aromitalia-Basso Bikes-Vaiano) were disqualified from the Tour of Flanders for throwing a bidon to roadside fans. 

The strict rules on the disposal of bidons was introduced on April 1 as part of wider rule changes on littering and safety that included bans on supertuck positions, improvements to finish area barriers and the introduction of a UCI Safety Manager and Event Safety Manager for each race.
