Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio has weighed in on the UCI’s decision to ban both the ‘super-tuck’ and ‘forearms on aero bars’ positions, telling Cyclingnews that while they are fast, they are also unsafe.

The SD Worx rider also revealed that there were no women, representative from the women’s peloton, involved in the decision-making process that led to a new series of wide-ranging safety measures. She also said that there were no female riders included in a notification regarding the proposed safety measures that was circulated by the CPA last November to 800 professional riders.
