The sport of cycling never fails to surprise those who study its development from an objective
standpoint. Unlike many other sporting disciplines, our sport has, in a short space of time,
become established on the five continents.
Its ability to satisfy the aspirations and requirements of the greatest number of enthusiasts is
most extraordinary. Its energy is even more amazing if we consider that, since its introduction,
cycling has in many different ways formed and influenced the development of modern sport. Has
it not promoted the birth of the sports press, fostered the link between industry and sport ? And
has it not provided many a subject for literature ?
The expansion of other sporting disciplines, the advent of motorisation and automation,
encourage us to think of cycling as a sport blemished by anachronism, whereas on the contrary,
in a highly developed industrial society, the bicycle represents the complete expression of human
and social vocation, an instrument of leisure and sport satisfying the demands of health and
open air activity, a means of establishing a harmonious relationship with nature.
As far as its usefulness is concerned, the bicycle provides an economical, pollution-free answer
to the energy crisis, it encourages the short journey and, to an ever-increasing extent, captures
the attention of town-planners and ecologists, with a view to the creation of an environment with
human dimensions.
This reality is also mirrored in the sport of cycling. Millions of racers are already affiliated to more
than 130 national federations recognised by the FIAC. These sportsmen are reviving our sport,
improving its technical standard, and this is why we are able to state that the sport of cycling
is, as yet, on the threshold of its expansion.

                                                 Until 1965 the UCI governed both the amateur
                                                 and professional sectors of the sport of
                                                 cycling. Divergence between these two sec-
