Are these UCi legal for road racing (TTs) or only for triathlons?

Not 100% sure about the rules on this bottle

A member posted their experience with one of these types of bottles in a topic somewhere here on BNA. If you cant find it i sorta remember the details of the story

I used one at the SA tt champs. I sent an email requesting the ruling on them first and got one back saying they were ok. However on getting down there one of the officials was not at all happy with it. One of our other club members went through scrutineering after me and got a different scrutineer than I did. The race starter had a look at his bike and he was not going to let him start until I produced my email saying they were ok. He begrudgingly let us start but wasn't at all happy and was muttering about it a bit. So it probably depends a bit on the official you get as to whether they are allowed or not. If you are determined to use it send an email to CA and get a ruling. I wont be using mine again as it caused too much of a stink and I was left feeling I had bent the rules and gained an advatage by using it. The other thread was in the road biking section here.

I have a similar situation are these Image Imagetypes of bottles legal for the average road race(not tt yes i know it's not the right forum but the topic fits)

I'm just wondering why anyone would bother spending a bajillion dollars on an aero frame and then just stick a regular bottle on it
