UCI officially bans white knicks
In a statement released this morning, cycling's governing body has released a new rule stating that white knicks (aka 'cycling shorts') are henceforth banned from the professional peloton.

A spokesperson for the UCI stated that "we anticipate that this new regulation will be less controversial than prior rulings on topics such as wheel structure, frame dimensions and the use of time trial bars in mass start races. There can be little disagreement that this particular ruling will increase the aesthetic appeal of the peloton."

Protest is expected from the Italian camp, particularly from the current world champion and his zebra-striped entourage. But the UCI specifically states that the ruling applies to "knicks where the fabric is continuously white, save for the presence of a few sponsor logos." A liberal interpretation of the rule means that the stylin' stripes of Domina Vacanze - Elitron will continue to stand out in the peloton. But the current trend of World Cup leaders and some national title holders attempting colour coordination with their jerseys will be discontinued.
