On September 14th, the Sport Forum of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), which met at the World Cycling Centre, voted for a motion regarding the approval of the transfer of governance of IPC Cycling from IPC to the UCI. After years of close cooperation between the UCI and the IPC, the UCI Management Committee officially contacted the IPC in 2005 informing them of its intention to assume the governance and management of cycling for riders with disabilities.

In 2002, an agreement had already been signed between the two organizations to enable a successful collaboration in cycling for riders with disabilities. Cycling for riders with disabilities is, after Equestrian sports, one of the IPC sports to have merged with its International Federation. The IPC Governing Board will ratify the transfer of governance at its next meeting in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, next November.

Editor's Note: It was also pointed out at the UCI Congress in Salzburg that Canada is one of three countries (along with Australia and Great Britain) to have made the greatest progress in integrating cycling for able and disabled cyclists.
