Crazy6 clarification

There have been some questions surrounding the use of CX bikes in our upcoming VES Crazy6 race. GMBC follows the MTBA technical regulations and where there is ambiguity in these regulations we adhere to those regulations issues by the UCI.

UCI tech Regs states:

4.1.039 During MTB races no traditional road handlebars may be used.

Clips-on extensions are forbidden but traditional barends are authorized.
