The Cyclistes Professionnels Associés (CPA) women's section is hoping to quell concerns that women's cycling has been underrepresented in the UCI's stakeholder-discussions surrounding the revised 2020 International Road Calendar

Cyclingnews spoke with the association's manager, Alessandra Cappellotto, who said that she has been in constant communication with the UCI as it tries to navigate a new late-season calendar. She also stressed that any potential date changes were dependent on government restrictions, guidelines and health precautions in each country amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.
