It sucks but it also taught me that it’s called the puppy paws position so thank you Marianne.

They should enforce it as much as they enforce the rules about safe sprint finishes.

Why are puppy paws banned, but posting up with no hands when you win not?

they've generally wanted to ban aero positions in mass start races ever since those clip-on aerobars in the 90s

I think one of the arguments is about discouraging scrubs from doing it when they don't have the handling skills.

The relevant section of the rules reads: "Sitting on the bicycle’s top tube is prohibited. Furthermore, using the forearms as a point of support on the handlebar is prohibited except in time trials." That's it. Very to the point and matter of fact imo

puppy paws actually seems much less safe than clipon aerobars so I'm surprised it wasn't banned sooner

Which if you've ever done lower grade amateur road racing, it is... not entirely a bad idea

Lower grade racers mostly crash due to overlapping wheels, not being able to ride in straight lines and not knowing how to corner at all. Banning puppy paws and supertucks is pretty silly...very few lower category racers are brave enough to do it.

I literally passed an entire cat 4 field in a race today without pedaling.

Ladies Tour of Norway or as it's now known Tour of Scandinavia started today and the first stage is in Denmark, and frankly it should be illegal to add "hill" climbs to any Danish stage.

'Tant piss' as the French triathlete would say.

I'm near corvara rn and the routes the Giro often takes around these parts are really beautiful, but the traffic is atrocious, even before ferragosto. Lots of miserable looking riders doing what looks more like an urban commute than a decent sortie.
