Spanish cyclist Dori Ruano will take the place of Olivia Gollan as president of the Women's Association of Professional Cyclists (CFHN). Gollan claimed a lack of free time to devote to the position, as she is still a full time professional cyclist. Ruano is in her last year as a pro, and is expected to have more time available. Edita Pucinskaite was elected vice-president of the CFHN.
The CPA and the CFHN will meet on Saturday, April 1 in Aigle. On the agenda, among other things, is the analysis of the joint agreement and of the minimum prize money grid for 2007, and matters pertaining to the Solidarity Fund, which helps riders who are not being paid by their teams.
