Yes the UCI was bought off by the French bike manufactures back in '34. The English and a few others wanted to accept bents but the French didnt.
The stiff necked fools in the UCI still keep up that farce that bents are not "real" bikes. They claim that it is the racer not the bike that should determine who wins a race. However is all racers could chose the bike they want to ride, the race would still be fair. They could simply ride a bent on more or less flat areas, and ride a DF in the mountains.
