The UCI will start enforcing a ban on the "super tuck" start in April.
Honestly this better be a joke. Let's just ban cycling alltogether, move to Zwift and let the CN forums become a haven for hypotheticals only.
It's not like there's no combat sports on TV or anything, and frankly I don't think it's up to the UCI to act like parents to kids who don't give a *** about cycling. Why not ban X games altogether? Ban any videoclip of some idiot trying something dangerous.

The idea of elevating athletes to (moral) role-models is ridiculous. Sport is not idealized reality, and it has no moral obligation to viewers detached from its moral obligations to its participants.
Like the penis out position (first discussed during the 2020 TDF as a safety precaution when crashing downhill)?Of all the idiotic things that the UCI has done over the years, this might just top the list. Might negate a key aspect of cycling. Wonder if this will backfire due to riders adopting more dangerous positions instead.
The seat tuck is just ridiculous.What about the "seat tuck", "superman" and the famed "back down"?
Wow, Ilnur Zakarin and Sébastien Reichenbach have really stepped up their game!Then put a banner after cresting the summit like they did in wrestling
"Cyclists are skilled professionals -bar Richie Porte, Thibaut Pinot and a few others- competing on close roads: Kids, don't try this at home"
