Bart Wellens' race exclusion

UCI statement

After examination of the reports from the three commissaires present on the Cyclo-cross event of last 18 December in Overijse (Belgium), the UCI has noted that the exclusion from competition for serious fault of Belgian rider Bart Wellens, is the only decision which can be taken into consideration, as there have been no collegial deliberations, nor decision of the majority of the three commissaries to come back on this exclusion from competition.

Therefore Bart Wellens does not appear on the Overijse event ranking (as previously reported). Moreover, the UCI will bring this case in front of the Disciplinary Commission for non-observation of instructions of the commissaires and that their image and reputation has been tarnished as well as cycling’s interests and the UCI. These infractions are liable of a fine or suspension.
