The professional cyclists association (CPA) announced on Thursday that Luxembourg champion Christine Majerus (SD Worx) will step into the role of representative on the UCI Safety Commission, joining Matteo Trentin (UAE Team Emirates) and Philippe Gilbert (Lotto Soudal) in voicing riders' views in the decision making process.

The move comes after Cyclingnews reported that women had no part in the commission when the UCI imposed new rules for safety including banning the 'super tuck' and 'forearms on bars' aero positions in road races.
