it is amazing what the rules all have to specify... un-specifically  - since there are so many guideline grey rules. UCI needs to grow a pair and create actual rules. not these up for interpretation type rules they think up as they go along I guess this is a step towards that

Us roadies wore short socks. Mtb hadn't been invented yet...

Heeheeeee. I remember it well.

Could be UCI, CSA etc are following the Rudy Giuliani's "broken windows" policy, go after enforcement of the small rules in the hope that this will solve the bigger issues. 

 

"minor disorders and violations create a permissive atmosphere that leads to further and more serious crimes that can threaten the safety of a city cycling"

Next rule will be bib tightness for maximum budgie smuggling effectiveness! Too much and you will break an aerodynamic ruling though!
