UCI 05.04.2019

It’s judgement of a commissaire to decide for DSQ (severe, out of competition, no rank) or REL (placed last of heat, but still ranked).

As in the regulation 4.2.012, DSQ is used for severe incidents (pushing, unfairness, behaviour), the consequence is that the rider loses everything obtained and can’t get a ranking in the competition (results summary), even if he passed one or more phases during competition.

4.2.012

Intentional contact by pushing, pulling or other means which causes another competitor to slow down, fall or exit the course is not allowed and results in disqualification for breach of UCI rules (DSQ) of the originator.

At the sole discretion of the commissaires’ panel, a rider can be announced relegated (REL) and will be given a heat position different to that of his actual finish.

  • New handlebar number after the time trial event with numbers 1 to 32.
