UCI Question (Floyd Related)

Does the UCI govenr mountain biking or cyclocross?

I ask because if his appeals do not succeed and he is banned, I wonder if Floyd will jump to another form of cycling. Considering he was a pro MTBer already, I wonder if he would jump back over to that arena.

Or if he considers it too risky on the new hip maybe cyclocross?

Just curious. Anyone know?

and track racing as well, so Floyd wouldn't even be able to go cash in on the oh-so-lucrative six-day circuit.

And even if they didn't, I doubt if someone banned for doping by the UCI would catch much slack from any other sanctioning group.

As a US registered rider, it's up to the USCF to impose a penalty. He'll cop 2 years.
