    Nothing in the opinion says anything about this applying only to pros.

  • Ben (Monday, April 08 13 10:21 am EDT)

    It only applies to those with UCI/international license.

    "Originally, this was described as only affecting those UCI-licensed riders on UCI teams. The UCI has subsequently clarified that the rule extends to ALL UCI-licensed riders, even those not associated with a UCI team. This rule only pertains to those riders holding an international/UCI license."

    While events like Breck-Epic/Whiskey are effected, you could at least argue those events have UCI/USAC options even if they are not needed. On the Enduro side, there is obviously a growing global demand for races. However, the UCI decided not to go that route so I do not even think a Enduro race could get a permit regardless. At top events like Trans-Provence, you have WC DH/XC/Cross riders all together. Great interview with Sven & Chris Ball here:,4574/Slideshow,0/sspomer,2
