Trials Rule changes (publication on the UCI website within 2, 3 weeks)
Following the results of the off-road survey (endurance and gravity) carried out by the International Cycling Union (UCI) last September and published on its website, the UCI has modified its mountain bike regulations.
To ensure that our stakeholders are informed of these modifications immediately, a document containing the changes to the regulations has been published on the UCI website. The amendments appear in red, and the original version is the English document.
The mountain bike regulations will not be subject to any further changes as far as content is concerned; only the lay-out will be adjusted. This final version will be published in English and French on the UCI website by mid-January 2011.
The new UCI Mountain Bike Regulations come into force on 1st January 2011.
