Spanish pro launches social media tirade after race disqualification for illegal riding position
September 16, 2021
Jon Aberasturi took to Twitter to share his frustration at being disqualified from the Tour de Luxembourg, after he was seen using the ‘super tuck’ position during stage two.
The riding position, aimed at improving aerodynamics, is one of those that was banned by the UCI on April 1 this year due to safety concerns.
The Caja Rural-Seguros RGA rider therefore won’t start the third stage of the Tour de Luxembourg, and he has also been handed a 500 Swiss franc fine for adopting the prohibited position. To make matters worse, the 32-year-old has had 15 points deducted from his UCI rankings, which he vehemently challenged the race jury on on Twitter. Cycling Weekly
