Cyclingnews has learned that the Cyclistes Professionels Associés (CPA) has brought forward proposed rule changes to the Transition Fund that include a points scoring system that will determine the amount riders could receive after their retirement. 

In a document leaked to Cyclingnews, the CPA riders' association have also set out plans that will ensure that riders who retired in 2019 must wait until the Spring of 2022 before they can potentially receive the full allocation of their retirement fund.  According to the document, which hasn’t yet been shared with all the riders who retired in 2019, the CPA have argued that these changes have been put in place as ‘special measures to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the fund’.
