That's rather odd. But rules are rules and they must be followed.
Reminded me of the Danish junior cyclist Tobias Lund Andersen celebrating victory this spring in Belgium, he got lots of people annoyed with his arrogant celebration.

What would be the reasoning for dqing them for holding hands? Seems a bit ridiculous unless there’s some reasoning behind it other then it’s the rules
Triathlon keeps getting confusing. I'm happy with my MTB
