UCI suspends usage of disc brakes

In the wake of an accident which left Paris-Roubaix participation Fran Ventoso with a serious leg laceration, the UCI has reportedly taken the move to suspend the use of disc brakes in the peloton.

Fran Ventoso: “Disc brakes should have NEVER arrived into the peloton, not at least as we know them right now. I haven’t met any rider who has run out of braking power with traditional brakes; I haven’t known anyone who didn’t see his wheels skidding when you brake with all power you’ve got, no matter traditional or disc brakes. Then: why [are we] using them?”
