Further to previous announcements – It appears that you can use your disc brakes at all events. Might have to get yourself a new bike!!
Well Done CA! ……Cycling Australia is pleased to announce that riders will be able to use bikes with disc brakes at all levels of road racing across Australia, effective immediately. Cycling Australia CEO Nick Green OAM said that the new stance on disc brakes will encourage and allow more people to get involved in racing, particularly at the local club level.
As always, rider safety is paramount in any decision and Cycling Australia will continue to monitor developments nationally and internationally in the coming months around disc brakes.
*Events excluded from using disc brakes:
- Para-cycling Road National Championships (hand cycles are already permitted under current UCI technical regulations.)
