Waiting to see the outcome of the "experiment" before drawing conclusions

The Professional Cyclists Association (CPA) has given its support to the UCI's approval of a ban on race radios for two stages of the upcoming Tour de France.

The organisation acknowledged that riders' opinions are split on the matter, and asked that riders, teams and fans wait to see the outcome of the experiment before drawing conclusions .

"We are sure that this novelty will lead to a great show and that it will give the escapees the opportunity to show what they are able to do."

The UCI gave approval for stages 10 and 13 of this year's Tour de France to be run under a temporary radio ban.
