WikiProject Cycling is the focus for reaching consensus decisions concerning articles within the scope of the WikiProject as interpretation of Wikipedia policies and guidelines. This page lists consensus decisions with a brief explanation to the consensus arrived at and a link to where the discussion or discussions were found. It is intended that this page is a reference to those discussions in order to find where discussions took place rather than to supersede the discussions and consensus reached.

Consensus can change, so if you do not agree with this consensus, you are free to discuss them, but please read the reasons for the current consensus, given in these consensus discussions, first. New discussions should take place at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Cycling or the relevant talk pages.

Cycling team nationalities[edit]

  • Trade cycling teams do not represent the country in which they are registered. As such, nationality should not be implied in tables through the use of flag templates (for example {{flagicon}}, {{flagathlete}} etc). (July 2009)

Use of {{Infobox cyclist}}[edit]

Race start lists[edit]

Team article win section formatting[edit]

Wins should be listed as an unbulleted list which conforms to one of the below formats depending upon the type of victory. There should only be one comma placed after the race name and before the rider name. (December 2014)

Cycling team naming[edit]

Rider results heading[edit]

  • Rider results should use the level 2 heading ==Major results==. If anything other than major results are present in the article (timelines, world records, honours, awards...) then use ==Career achievements== (level 2) → ===Major results=== (level 3), ===Grand Tour general classification results timeline=== (level 3) etc. The French word Palmarès should not be used as a heading. (September 2016)

Colored backgrounds in tables[edit]

  • Tables should not use colored backgrounds to highlight prestige of a race. (October 2016: discussion) BaldBoris 13:47, 5 October 2016 (UTC)
