At a recent meeting of the professional cyclists' association, the CPA, the organisation levelled some strong criticism at the ENECO Tour of Belgium and the Netherlands. The race was marred by safety and organisational issues, in particular relating to the shortness of some of its circuits. The CPA has proposed that for 2006 ProTour circuits should not be shorter than 10km, and has also suggested that some of this year's stage races were too long. The ENECO Tour and the Tours of Germany and Poland should be shortened to five or six days, the organisation has suggested.
