Legalities (of various sorts)
So while I was looking through the photo galleries on various velodrome websites today, I saw that every so often, there would be a race (pursuit races, as best I could tell) where riders weren't riding the normal deep drop handlebars, but instead had aero bars, as you would see in time trials/triathlons. Is pursuit the only kind of race where these bars are allowed (according to UCI/USCF rules)? I didn't see anything in the regs about this, and it looked like everyone was running drops in the other ones...
Which leads me to my next question...are aero forks (carbon or otherwise) legal in any/all/some races?
Are there any other track legality requirements of note (other than fixed gear only, no brakes, etc.)?
