Stakeholders of the UCI Women’s WorldTour and UCI WorldTour – the flagship series of men’s and women’s professional road cycling – met on 28 and 29 November in Monte Carlo (Monaco) for their annual seminar, organised by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI). The Tour de Pologne race was represented by Agata Lang (who is also on the UCI board) and the race general manager John Lelangue. What were the main topics of the meeting?
The highlight of the seminar was a discussion on the future of road cycling. Issues such as new ways to improve riders safety, the further development of the discipline with a particular focus on women’s racing and the climate change measures proposed by the UCI, which are specifically described in the ‘UCI Action Climate Charter’, were raised.
At the end of the seminar, UCI President David Lappartient said: “The 2022 UCI Women’s WorldTour and UCI WorldTour Seminar once again gave rise to constructive exchanges in a spirit of cooperation between the various members of women’s and men’s professional road cycling. Cycling is on the up, as evidenced by the extraordinary growth of women’s road cycling and the unprecedented growth of the cycle industry. We are all working together to further develop our sport in all its aspects.”
