so... I was told by a racer in VA that UCI and "serious" USAC races won't allow handups at all. I read the UCI cyclocross rules (found here) and it says nothing about handups- just about the pit which is for "changing bicycles and wheels."
we've stopped doing handups to train for UCI races, based on what that dude said, but I'm now questioning whether that's true. can anyone tell me whether this rule exists, and if so, where?
