Prevent bike swaps in races

With the rolling resistance changes the fastest way to race routes including the jungle is a bike swap to the MTB as you enter and then back to a road bike as you leave the jungle loop. This is a ridiculous situation that penalises those that do not have the MTB and is just odd when it occurs in a race. While the choice of equipment has been proved to have a time effect none of the road bikes provide such an enormous time benefit over the other choices (or more benefit than a well used power up).

I’d like to propose that what ever bike you leave the pen on during a race is the only bike that you can ride till you cross the finish line (swapping in the pen before the start should remain allowed).

Or just roll back the rolling resistance (pun intended) to what it was prior to the Oct. update!


Don’t think that is likely or necessary.
