UCI plans to ban UCI track teams
A bomb went off in track cycling, and it hit BEAT and other UCI Track Teams. UCI wants to create a nations-only competition. The current UCI track teams will effectively be banned from the sport’s biggest stage. The existence of the BEAT track team and other UCI track teams are heavily threatened by this ban.
On Dutch radio station NPO Radio 1 managing director of BEAT, Geert Broekhuizen and track cyclist Laurine van Riessen discussed the UCI plans.
