    Default 2020 Road Racing (NEW) Season FACTUAL SPOILERS

    UCI should remove its ban on sock length and allow any length of sock - or no socks - to be worn in competition.

    Discuss.

    Aero leg warmers - nothing in the rules against those!

    UCI should ban powermeters in race.
    UCI should keep motorcycles farther away from break-aways as well as the peloton.
    Rider safety should be primary goal, socks be damned.

    I predict the UCI comes off poorly in the CAS review of the Eekhoff DQ, not unlike the way their lab practices were shamed during Floyd's trial. I also predict it changes a few words of a rule and nothing else.

    I was thinking that they should do away with 50% of the press motos and replace them with dernys to pace dropped riders in the top 20 places back up to the peloton after crashes and/or mechanicals.

    No socks above the knee? Think of the extra advertising space!

    Personally I think the biggest issue for the Tour of California was that it was f()king boring.

    They will get entries because his star is rising fast. He’s a draw.

    The guy is winning cross races at the moment. It hasn't happened yet, but surely there is a risk of burnout at some point?

    All very interesting.

    CyclingTips recently ran two articles interviewing a doctor who worked with Dennis to help him mentally pick up the pieces after the TdF and prepare for the worlds. Makes an interesting read. Here's part 1:

    Similar to "stay on your bike Danny Hart" I will say "stay on your bike Tejay".
    Can you watch this video too many times?
