Communication Protocol for UCI Commissaires at the Tour de France

To: Membres of the media From: UCI Communications

In order to ensure the best working conditions to race officials, UCI Commissaires officiating at the Tour de France will not address the media, even in exceptional circumstances.

If approached, officials will direct media to the race communique.

If further explanations are required, UCI Communications team will respond to the journalists. Instructions in that sense have been passed on to Commissaires Panel and to the organisers.

By doing so, media will be appropriately accommodated while commissaires will be focused on their sole and essential task: judging the race.

The AIJC will send to all their members the numbers of the persons of the UCI communicationsdepartment.
