Brent Bookwalter ended his career as a professional racer this year, having spent three seasons at Team BikeExchange and 11 years with BMC Racing. He will continue advocating for riders of all levels when he joins the Pro Cyclist Foundation as vice-chairperson of the Foundation's Advisory Board of Directors.

The PCF launched in 2020 with the support of the Black Swift Group, LLC, and has already donated more than $350,000 to cycling initiatives including the HotTubes, Onto Cycling, and Lux Cycling development programmes, the Aevelo and Twenty24 teams, plus USA Cycling's Mud Fund and USA Cycling's Foundation. Its mission is "to offer professional cyclists improved access to legal, wellness and career services to benefit the sport of cycling at all levels".

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
