Earpiece radios
Dear President,
After a thorough reflection on the subject of the use of earpiece radios in races, the UCI Management
Committee decided during its meeting in Lugano (Switzerland) on 23rd September to forbid gradually
the use of earpiece radios for all categories of rider. This decision has been taken on the basis of a
very careful study, in particular taking into account the will of the majority of those involved in cycling.
We would remind you that this ban is already in place for the Junior and Under-23 categories.
The ban will be gradually introduced in accordance with a timetable, the first stage of which will be:
· 2010 season: ban for Men Elite and Women Elite Class 2 events of the UCI international calendar,
events of the national calendar as well as the UCI World Championships
We are therefore asking you to take the necessary steps so that you can implement this measure of
ban at all national races registered on the national calendar of your Federation. We are also relying on
you to inform your club teams, your national commissaires and other licence-holders.
Thank you for your cooperation on this matter.
Yours faithfully,
Marc Chovelon
Sports Coordinator – Road
