According to VeloNews, Julien Carron, UCI’s technical coordinator, is stepping down. Julien spearheaded the program for frame and fork approval and has been pushing to have other product categories added. According to this update a successor has already been named and will take over at the start of 2013.

What does this mean for you, the race mechanic? We aren’t sure yet. We suggest you continue to work with your frame and wheel suppliers to make sure your equipment is both approved and properly labeled.
