The world association of cyclists Cyclistes Professionnels Associés (CPA) met at the end of 2022 to set the date and approve the rules for the election of the president. The riders will choose Gianni Bugno’s successor on 17 March 2023 in Milan, on the eve of the Milano-Sanremo and two days before the Trofeo Binda, which will bring together the world’s best cyclists in Italy.

«We had to wait as long as necessary to introduce the new electronic voting system into our by-laws and to guarantee its security for the smooth running of the elections» explains Bugno, who in his three consecutive terms of office has achieved so many goals for the group since 2010, when he was elected to the top position in the riders’ association.

As can be read in detail in the regulations published on the website, in the elections on 17 March riders will be able to vote individually as well as through their national representatives and wherever they are. However, it will be mandatory to register as a CPA member, download the MyCpa app and participate in the assembly called on election day. The assembly will be held both in-person and online, and all women and men cyclists who are members of the association will receive the necessary information in good time to participate (for organisational reasons, if remotely, it is essential to register for the assembly no later than 48 hours before the start time).

The CPA website has all the information for those interested in running for president. In addition to having no conflicts of interest, candidates for the CPA presidency must send their CVs no later than 15 days before the election date to so that the CPA members can find out about their programmes and the objectives they aim to achieve in the interest of top-class cyclists.

The CPA is the first association that is part of a federation to guarantee the possibility to vote remotely. «During the last elections the riders had asked us to implement this innovation. Voting electronically meant changing our statutes, rethinking our internal structure by guaranteeing that individual riders could vote, and creating a tool, our new app, that would serve the purpose. It was not an easy task, but I am happy that we have fulfilled our commitment to the riders and I am certain that our union will come out even stronger» Gianni Bugno concludes.
