Cédric Vasseur looks certain to become the new chairman of the Associated Professional Cyclists when the position is filled this Friday in Italy. As the only candidate for the position, Frenchman Vasseur is likely to become the successor of current chairman Francesco Moser.
Moser has been the chairman of the association since its inception in 1999, and has called the Annual General Meeting for this Friday, a day before the Giro di Lombardia.
After retiring from competition this season, the 37 year-old Vasseur put his nomination for the job forward, which has been supported by many of his former colleagues. "The candidacy of Cédric Vasseur, a member of the racers council, has been supported by many of his colleagues from many different nations, which we have taken as a good sign from the group," a spokesperson for the body told HLN.be.
