UCI Survey on Road Cycling



Appeal of road cycling: the UCI seeks the opinion of the general public

The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) is pleased to announce that today it is launching a large-scale consultation to find out the opinion of the general public when it comes to the appeal of road cycling and their expectations for the discipline’s future evolution.
An on-line survey enables interested parties, until Tuesday 16 July, to give their opinion on points that
may - or may not - make road cycling even more enthralling: use of earpieces by teams and their riders, use of power metres in competition, team size and budgets, format of events, how events are broadcast and provision of on-screen data during races, to cite just a few. The survey is available in eight languages: French, English, Spanish, Arab, Russian, Portuguese, German and Italian.
This survey is one of the elements of a wide consultation procedure involving cycling’s stakeholders which also includes interviews with numerous people from cycling’s different extended families, and an ad hoc working group comprising representatives of road cycling’s teams, riders and organisers but also, and importantly, media and broadcasters. This plan of action was approved by the UCI Management Committee during its meeting in Lavey-les-Bains (Switzerland) last June. A series of propositions will be drawn up based on these consultations, with a view to their approval by the Professional Cycling Council and the UCI Management Committee in 2020.
The UCI President David Lappartient said: “Developing the appeal of road cycling in a world that is changing is one of the central aims of the UCI’s Agenda 2022. To do this, it is essential to have the opinion not only of cycling’s different stakeholders, but also the wider public, both committed fans and casual spectators. The survey that we are launching today offers everyone the chance to give their opinion and is part of a wider consultation process that will enable the UCI to take steps to modernise road cycling that will meet the expectations of as many people as possible. My thanks go to all those who take a few minutes of their time to contribute to the evolution of our sport.”
