UCI takes decisive action and bans Russian and Belarusian teams from competition

March 1, 2022

The step was taken after Russian and Belarusian forces invaded Ukraine in recent days and sees UCI teams, national teams, regional teams, and commissaires all suspended from UCI competition and, in the case of events, suspended from the UCI calendar. The world governing body has however held back from the IOC measure blocking Russian and Belarusian athletes from competing, allowing them to race once they are not doing so as part of teams from those countries.
