· UCI Cyclo-cross Regulation Update
Feeding (defined as the handing-up of a water bottle) is no longer permitted in the pit in cyclo-cross races, regardless of the temperature. (Previously, feeding was allowed provided temperatures exceeded +20C.) In addition:
o Feeding is not permitted anywhere on course
o Riders may start with water bottles on both primary and pit bikes, in their pockets, or in a hydration-bladder device
o Reference: UCI 5.1.038 - A rider may only take the pit lane to change his bicycle, wheel(s) or for other mechanical assistance. (text modified on 1.09.04; 1.07.10; 16.06.14; 01.07.2015).
