I read your editorial about the UCI tire size rule, good work. I don’t see how this benefits anyone really. If they want to keep the cost down for Jr’s then the rule should only apply to them. Like was mentioned in your…"

I read your editorial about the UCI tire size rule, good work. I don’t see how this benefits anyone really. If they want to keep the cost down for Jr’s then the rule should only apply to them. Like was mentioned in your editorial the big names and teams will still have truckloads of tires and wheels. I want to know how the UCI is going to check tire size “during the races”. “The commissaires will be checking the width of tires on site, randomly or systematically, whenever they want, before, during and/or after the races.” I could just see it now lap 3 tech inspections, everyone stops where they are and a commissar caliper checks all the racers tire widths!!!
Thanks for the info. I'm planning on staying in Brussels and was going to rent a car to travel to both Lille and Zonhoven. Do you have any suggestions for public transportation? I tried looking to a train but couldn't find any that went to race course. I have a hotel in Brussels but am open to other suggestions also. Thanks again for your help and cant wait to meet you next weekend!
I'm heading over the Belgium next weekend and going to try to watch the GVA in Lille and possibly the Superprestige in Zonhoven. Do you have any tips or suggestions on how to plan the trip? I cant find any information online on where in the city these races are. Thanks and keep up the awesome interviews and columns.
