Union Cyclist Internationale – France

Every bicycle frameset used at the Tour de France (and any machine raced at any UCI sanctioned bicycle event for that matter) is validated by the Union Cyclist Internationale  (UCI). Enabling this intensive process is a bike measurement system based on a ROMER Absolute Arm from Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. This Portable Coordinate Measurement Machine (PCMM) is used to ensure that every bicycle frame and fork meet rigid UCI standards. Once inspected, the frameset is issued a UCI approval sticker and thus made race-legal at any UCI approved event anywhere around the world.
