Four Wheel Rule Exception

先月、FIRSなどの公式レースでは2輪や3輪フレームの使用出来ないというルールに関する書き込みが海外フォーラムでありました。欧米のレースに、多くは無いけれど2輪3輪のジュニア選手が参加しているので、これまでは禁止されていなかったのでしょう。6月1日付で、USARSのホームページに、これに関するルールが掲載されました。

3 Wheel Frames NOT alllowed at ODN

by DFWSk8ter (May 7, 2009)
I had just learned at the clinic this past week that the 3 wheeled frames will NOT be allowed at Outdoor Nationals this year. According to CIC rules, which is what ODN will go by, you will not be allowed to use them for competition. The reason for this was unknown, and hopefully someone can inform us as to "why" since there were no answers given.

Im assuming that the freshman and masters will be allowed to use them since they are not trying out for the Jr. and Sr. World Team, but I am not positive. I would hate for someone to show up at ODN to compete and be DQ'd before the start. With all this being said, if anyone has any answers as to this ruling and why it is being enforced, please share with us. Thanks for your time,

2009 Outdoor National Championships Four Wheel Rule Exception

by USARS Staff (Jun. 1, 2009)
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CICThere will be an exception made to the CIC rule Art.20 for the 2009 Banked Track and Road National Championships. The exception will be made for the freshman and master divisions as the CIC rules are strictly applied to the events that are qualifiers for the junior and senior US World Team.

The CIC rule below states that "skates having a min. of 4 wheels to a maximum of six wheels, fastened in line are permitted." Based on this rule, frames with less than 4 wheels are not allowed. However, since an exception is being made, frames with less than 4 wheels are permitted in the freshman and master events.

Art. 20 - Skates
Skates with two pairs of wheels fastened parallel to each other or skates having a min. of 4 wheels to a maximum of six wheels, fastened in line are permitted. The maximum diameter of wheel must not exceed 110 mm. The skate must not exceed 50 cm. in length. Skates must be firmly attached to the shoes and axles are not to protrude from the wheels. Brakes are forbidden. Clap skates are allowed without propulsive gear.
