This morning VeloNation sent out a reminder that time is running out to get your riders’ saddles and thus positions figured out.

The ruling states “This angle must be less than 2.5 degrees with an error tolerance of 0.5 degree,”. According to the article the UCI is going to allow up to 3 degrees, relaxing their zero tolerance stance. However, we recommend that team mechanics work with their team director and corresponding federations to insure they aren’t caught by surprise when next confronted by this test. The UCI has a habit of leaving things up to interpretation and various officials interpret differently.
