UCI to ban supertuck descending starting April 1st.

Regarding bottles, I think many of them are now completely biodegradable within a year when exposed to the elements. At least that is what says in the team issues of many bottles (from Tacx and one or two from Elite) that I have.

Gel and bar packages are the ones I see being more harmful. But then again, what do these weigh when empty? Don't see the need for the riders to dispose of them.
problem is we have gone from ridiculous throwin away hundreds of bottles anywhere riders wish to rigid enforcement of rules

blame riders/team sky for roadside feeding every hundred metres...+ taking bottles from team car only to immediately discard...+ dropping bottles at foot of climb knowing new ones could be found at summit.....

what the UCI is yet to get to grips with is sticky bottles and riders urinating at roadside so close to watching fans......................

Simple solution: Every rider gets a catheter inserted, which they will be allowed to empty in designated zones during the races. This will also make it easier for anti doping authorities to collect and test urine samples. Producers would also know when to cut away from "the action".

I only pee on people, that word starts with pee when spoken, so I thought that was the point?

No, but they have to do it somewehere, and I generally think they try avoiding it near spectators and I definitely do not think this is an area that requires further regulation.

So are the UCI pretending that today's bottle throw to a kid from Carthy, clearly picked up on TV, didn't happen, or is this the effective announcement that gifted bottles are not considered littering, or are riders left to guess which attitude the commissaires will take on any given day?
