FUCI *&* FUSAC


The UCI and USAC assclowns are at it again, threatening pro riders who ride in races not sanctioned by USAC. Sue George explains:

Many American mountain bike races like the Leadville 100, National Ultra Endurance (NUE) Series rounds, the Whiskey 50 and the Trans-Sylvania Epic and Breck Epic mountain bike stage races are not USAC-sanctioned events. The same is true for many races in the newly emerging enduro discipline, especially with the UCI only recently saying it will recognize the enduro discipline, although it won't maintain an official calendar until 2014.

The forbidden races rules affect only elite riders on UCI teams, who cannot race unsanctioned events without fear of punishment. That means World Cup racers like Georgia Gould can't decided to race the Leadville 100 or Stephen Ettinger can't test his endurance potential in a mountain bike stage race like the Trans-Sylvania Epic, a race his BMC team sponsor is also backing.
