The Sport Forum of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) voted on September 14 to transfer governance of IPC Cycling to the UCI in future. The vote came after the UCI 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."

The IPC Governing Board will ratify the transfer of governance at its next meeting in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in November.
