THE RIDERS PROTEST AND ASK FOR MORE SAFETY IN THE RACES AT THE CRITERIUM DU DAUPHINÉ

from 16/08/20

At this year's Criterium du Dauphiné, the riders, together with the CPA, have asked to neutralize the first 10 km of descent of the fifth stage of the French race, saying that it is too dangerous and mentioning what happened at yesterday's 4th stage.
The riders want to send a clear signal of protest to both the organizers and to the UCI referring to the serious crashes and accidents that have occurred in the recent races, asking for greater attention to their safety.
The CPA asks the UCI and all stakeholders of cycling to set up a round table to start the revision of the regulations to get a clear feedback in terms of prevention and sanctions towards the race organizers. The purpose of this is to protect the physical integrity of the riders and to allow them to carry out their work in greater safety.
