Jeg blir med. Dessverre med moderne sykkel, men nok eiker og lave hjul. og det som ellers kreves.
Her er hva guru Lennard Zinn skriver om sånne ritt:www.velonews.com
Since you wont find this in the UCI rulebook, I think it is up to individual race promoters.
For example, here in Boulder, Clark Sheehan puts on a time trial series that has a Merckx Class. The understanding is generally that it should be on a bike like Merckx would have ridden, much as the new UCI rules on the world hour record on the track are meant to ensure that new records will be directly comparable to what Merckx did when setting his hour record that held up until Francesco Moser notched it up using disc wheels, cowhorn bars and short head tube. I guess you could approach it with the question What would Eddy do? at the back of your mind when choosing your equipment.
Despite the general restrictions, Im certain that Clark wont force you to wear a wool jersey and shorts. The idea is to eliminate aero bikes, aero handlebars, aero wheels and aero helmets. I imagine a skinsuit might get you kicked out of the Merckx class.
While disc or deep-section wheels would be disallowed, low-profile rims with a V-section will probably pass. And a carbon frame and STI or Ergopower levers and bib shorts are probably okay, too. Youll already have to wear an ANSI-approved helmet, which Merckx did not. The idea is to just use a standard road setup, like you would use in a mass-start road race, except with the lowest-profile wheels you have in your garage.
Sånne temporitt har også slått an i England, der bla Planet-X har sponsa en serie. Det er bare å definere passe greie regler og deg selv som jury for å passe på at det holder seg passe laidback og at deltagere ikke prøver å snike inn aereofordeler i strid med rittets ånd.
