1.3.023 For road time trial competitions and for the following track competitions: individual and team pursuit,
kilometre and 500 m, an extension may be added to the steering system. The distance
between the vertical line passing through the bottom bracket axle and the extremity of the handlebar
may not exceed 75 cm, with the other limits set in article 1.3.022 (B,C,D) remaining
unchanged. A support for the elbows or forearms is permitted (see diagram «Structure (1B)»).
For road time trial competitions, controls or levers fixed to the handlebar extension may extend
beyond the 75 cm limit as long as they do not constitute a change of use, particularly that of providing
an alternative hand position beyond the 75 cm mark.
For the track and road competitions covered by the first paragraph, the distance of 75 cm may be
increased to 80 cm to the extent that this is required for morphological reasons; «morphological reasons
» should be taken as meaning anything regarding the size or length of the rider's body parts. A
rider who, for this reason, considers that he needs to make use of a distance between 75 and 80
cm must inform the commissaires' panel at the moment that he presents his licence. In such cases
the commissaires' panel may carry out the following test: ensuring that the angle between the forearm
and upper arm does not exceed 120° when the rider is in a racing position.
