      All,

      Here is a definitive response from Peter Van den Abeele, head of the UCI
      cyclo-cross commission, on the recent news about banning "beer tents" in
      'cross races:

      >> 2. We have a number of organizers here who have read about the "no beer tent"
      >> rule in the news, but have no official information. We have a number of
      >> events that had planned their courses this way, and it's a rare treat when we
      >> can do it in the US, as many venues don't allow public drinking. We've never
      >> had the problems here with drunken fans and bad behavior.
      >>
      > This is one big MISTAKE which caused me a lot of Œproblems¹ during the
      > weekend, UCI doesn¹t have a Rule saying beer tents are not longer authorized,
      > and we didn¹t discuss this item yet. The Belgian Cycling Federation doesn¹t
      > want beer tents any more in their races!! Press people sometimes quote things
      > WRONG, I called the concerning journalist to clarify this item.
      >
      >> How will this rule be enforced, and do I have to advise these US organizers
      >> to modify their courses?
      >>
      > NO !!!!

      Drink away...
