UCI grants mechanics free entry

The new cyclo-cross season is almost upon us and with it comes yet another rule change, this one something that will come as a relief for the riders and teams. As of this winter one care taker and two mechanics will receive free entry to races, but must be officially accredited mechanics or medical personnel.

The new rule comes about after Jonathan Page's mechanic, Franky Van Haesebroucke, was refused entry to the cyclo-cross race in Lille by security guards. The resulting scuffle led the hospitalisation of Van Haesebroucke and Page refusing to race in protest.
