The standard Bike TTs

More and more TT bikes are not being allowed for juniors. In age groups that allow them, some big races don't.
Any thoughts from juniors or junior parents?

TT bikes for juniors are permitted by UCI rules, which USAC goes by. Do you have any specific race that is not allowing them?

(Of course, what you say "junior" may be different than what I have personal knowledge of, that is: 17-18 year olds.)

I have seen this at East Coast stage race as well. It would take some effort to find that one.

14 and under may not use a TT bike. They used to be able to.

Wow. That's new. We raced 2 or 3 years ago at VoS, using TT bikes. This looks like a promoter limitation, not an official rule.

Personally, I think it's idiotic. Like the amount of training they're going to get from a 30-minute race is somehow more beneficial if they're on road bikes. Idiots.

This is coming from USA Cycling. The US Cycling coaches that select who go to Europe, be on the National team and the invited positions at Worlds have decided this is how they want to see riders compete for selection.

I do like not having to drag two bikes. But we spent a lot of time practicing a TT - in a TT position, and it is on TT bikes in TT position at Nationals.
