As for the radios, the UCI has made som attempts to get rid of them, e.g the worlds. But the teams claim that racing without radios is unsafe etc... Witch is of course utter bull****. They ride on closed, clearly marked roads, of course there are crashes, but radios have nothing to to with that.
So the UCI have already tried to get rid of the radios, with no luck. I don't think the fans have much power in this matter. The teams struggling to keep up should support the UCI, as they would benefit from less controlled racing.
As for the weight limit, I think all bike brands are already lobbying the UCI on that point.
But I'm actually staying at the same hotel as the UCI brass during the Worlds in Valkenburg, so I might try and give them a few tips during breakfast (if I'm sober enough).
