Hey Track riders!  Did you know that there are new rules regarding the technical specifications for bikes that officials will be looking for during bike check starting on January 1, 2023! There will be exemptions based on three rider height categories:

  • For riders < 180cm in height:
    • Horizontal distance between vertical planes passing through the bottom bracket axle and extremity of fixed TT extension handlebar may be a maximum of 800mm
    • Height difference between midpoint of forearm support and highest or lowest point of extension must be less than 100mm
  • For riders between 180-190cm in height:
    • Horizontal distance between vertical planes passing through the bottom bracket axle and extremity of fixed TT extension handlebar may be a maximum of 830mm
    • Height difference between midpoint of forearm support and highest or lowest point of extension must be less than 120mm
