Federations and the development of the UCI Asia Tour calendar will be the key subjects at a conference organised by the UCI on September 15 during the Asian Continental Championships.

The working of UCI Continental Circuits, rankings, UCI teams and the qualification system for the World Championships and the Road races at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing will be discussed.

Mr Choi Boo Wong, Secretary General of the Asian Cycling Confederation, will take part in the conference along with the UCI President, Pat McQuaid, the Road Sports Coordinator, Philippe Chevallier and the UCI Asia Tour Adviser, Jamaludin Mahmood.

McQuaid will also go to Southern China for the presentation of a new race in Asia, the Tour of Hainan Island, which will take place in November. McQuaid will have talks with the Governor of the province of Hainan, Mr Liucheng Wei.

The province of Hainan, also known as Qiong, has a population of about 8 million and is situated in the Southern China sea, off the furthest point of Southern China.
