Directors unite

Professional cycling has team organisations IPCT (ProTour teams) and AIGCP (The International Association of Professional Cycling Teams) and the riders' organisation, CPA (Association of Professional Cyclists), and will now have another association just for team directors. The new professional association, the ADISPRO, or the International Association of Directeur Sportifs (ADISPRO), was announced on Friday in Varese. The ADISPRO will be based in Milan, and will appoint its executive committee in November.

The new association's president, Alberto Volpi, director of Barloworld, was pleased to finally realize his dream of uniting team directors, which will consist of team directors from six different countries (Italy, France, Belgium, Spain, Denmark and Australia).
