UCI Athletes' Commission - Indoor cycling
In line with the new voting system introduced this year, applications are now open to candidates from indoor cycling. Elections for the representatives of indoor cycling – one man from cycle-ball and one woman from artistic cycling – will be held during the UCI Indoor Cycling World Championships in Dornbirn, Austria, on 24th-26th November.
Under the new voting system, not only will the number of athletes on the UCI Athletes’ Commission increase, but there will be men-women parity across all disciplines. All representatives on the Commission will be elected for a term of four years, from the 2017 UCI Congress to the 2021 UCI Congress. To be eligible, candidates must be currently active in the sport or have retired within the last four years before the election date.
Further information, including the eligibility criteria and the application process, is available here.
Applications for the representatives of indoor cycling must be submitted by 12th November. Candidates are requested to send their CV to email@example.com.
The final list of candidates, as well as further information on voting procedure (locations and times) will published on the UCI website on 20th November, ahead of the UCI Indoor Cycling World Championships.
Any athlete participating in the cycle-ball and artistic cycling competitions in Dornbirn may vote for one man and one woman whose names are on the list of candidates. The results of the elections will be announced on www.uci.ch.
