The much needed UCI loller thread

I think RHD is referring to how the Tour of Poland organisers heralded an arrangement with Boplan to use the big yellow barriers and other safety equipment in the races following the more than justified backlash after the finish in Katowice in 2020. However this year they used them close to the finish but still had finishes that were still not safe at all and not to uci guidelines.

Going by the location of most of the crashes in the race this year, the organisers should have placed the Boplan stuff in the first 300m or so of the final kilometre and then used the old rubbish stuff in the last coupe of 100m. It's possibly a slightly dark way of looking at it but the final sprints were actually pretty safe as everyone was spread out enough due to previous incidents and accidents.
Ok, i must have missed that.
 
Just seemed like a case of "Look at how 'terrible' those barriers are! Nothing happened."

Guess it just shows that sometimes autistic people can't detect sarcasm, sometimes we detect it when it's not even there...
I simply noticed the barriers during the transmission from London during the burial and thought of the barrier debate among cycling fans (in a quite different context). ;)

Cro Race needs to improve safety, kinda BS tbh, shouldn’t be .Pro
EDIT- I realize my original post made no sense, and Benji deleted his tweet, but basically some Croatian social media post said Cro Race will be moving up to .Pro.
Although there isn't anything much on JVF's post, it's probably appropriate to include it here, with the lack of safety at the Cro Race.

The UCI also let the Ridelondon thing stay at WWT level despite the lack of tv coverage this year.

I realized my post had no fruit to it, but the reasoning is there. Every year Cro Race always has at least one dangerous finish.
