Tour of the Alps joins the AIOCC family

The international association of cycling organizers has welcomed the Italian UCI Pro Series stage race as a new member at the General Assembly held in Paris

The AIOCC General Assembly took place on November 19th in Paris, with the attendance of 85 cycling events’ organizers and 8 more following the discussions by video conference. Represented by the General Manager Maurizio Evangelista at the assembly, the Tour of the Alps (UCI Pro Series stage race) powered by GS Alto Garda has officially joined the cycling organizers’ international family as a new member.

A new Board of Directors was elected which appointed Christian Prudhomme to chair it for the next four years. After the last two seasons marked by the Covid-19 pandemic and the many difficulties encountered by the organizers, the participants were able to discuss the main subjects introduced by the AIOCC such as safety, respect for the environment, and women’s cycling development.

“I am proud of the confidence placed in me once again by the members of AIOCC, which is the voice of the organizers. We will continue with strength and conviction to do the work that we have carried out for several years to better explain the job of the organizers, which is varied and not limited to the sporting aspect – AIOCC President Christian Prudhomme argued -. I strongly believe in the cycling pyramid. You need a wide base. We have the will with the new Board of Directors to do more for the races of the other members to support them, encourage them, and answer their questions.”
