The International Cycling Union (UCI) today published the full report from the UCI Stakeholders Consultation, âA Bright Future for Cyclingâ.
The Deloitte report, which was presented to the UCI Management Committee at its meeting in Bergen, Norway, on 13 June, is expected to lay the foundation for the future development of the sport.
After publishing the Executive Summary on May 23rd, the UCI is now making the report in its entirety available on the UCI website.
âWe place enormous importance on transparency, which is why the UCI Management Committee agreed to make this report public,â declared UCI President Mr Pat McQuaid. âWe invited all cyclingâs stakeholders to take part in the consultation, and it is only natural that they now have access to the ensuing report.â
More than 6300 men and women from 73 countries took part in the consultation, responding to the online questionnaire between 21 February and 15 March. They included fans, riders, team officials, race organisers, sports bodies and the media.
In parallel with the survey, five meetings were organised with all the stakeholder groups involved in cycling. These meetings dealt with the consultationâs four pillars: anti-doping, cycling calendar, globalisation and riders.
The Deloitte report is a result of the analysis of these two initiatives. It details the positive response from stakeholders to many aspects of the UCIâs activities and also pinpoints areas for potential improvement, making a number of âcrucialâ and âhigh priorityâ recommendations.
Earlier in June, the Management Committee announced that it accepted in principle the 11 âcrucialâ and âhigh-priorityâ recommendations in the report â and agreed to establish an action plan based on these recommendations.
