DH Protective Clothing Requirement Update - Long Sleeve Shirts Now Mandatory
On 1 January 2023 an update to UCI Regulation 4.3.011 came into effect that changed the protective clothing requirements for downhill events. The updated regulation now mandates the wearing of long sleeved shirts and introduces requirements for leg covering/protection.
The impact of the change to the CNZ/MTBNZ MTB Regulations is that long sleeved shirts are now mandatory for all riders (previously senior riders could wear short sleeve shirts with elbow protection). The leg protection rules are essentially the same as the existing NZ requirements.
The updated CNZ/MTBNZ Protective Clothing Requirements are available here.
The new requirements will apply at all MTBNZ, CNZ (MTB Nationals) and UCI calendar events in New Zealand, starting with round 1 of the MTBNZ DH series in Cardrona on 15 January.
