UCI introduces yellow cards in road cycling

Similar to football, yellow cards will soon be handed out as a warning in road cycling for rule violations. The world cycling association UCI wants to test this set of rules from 1 August until the end of the 2024 season. In the new 2025 season, yellow cards will be included in a stricter set of rules. If a rider receives several yellow cards, suspensions may occur.
