Giro d'Italia

2011 Giro d’Italia, stage 1: a Caley Fretz gallery

Caley Fretz watches the UCI decide what constitutes a proper time-trial bike — and a legal fit to same — as the 2011 Giro d'Italia gets under way.

Don't miss a moment from Paris-Roubaix and Unbound Gravel, to the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and everything in between when you join Outside+.

The UCI has a book full of rules and regulations specifying not only what a race bike can look like, but also how a rider can fit on it.

For important time trials these rules are strictly enforced, with each rider (or his bike, at least) going through a UCI checkpoint to make sure everything falls within the rules.

That means a whole crop of sparkly TT gear all in one place, pulling tech writers in like magpies.
