Centralized prize money management

The CPA ensures transparency, efficiency and cost savings in the management of the prize money of the professional riders

CPA has been working on a project concerning a new, centralised and automated management of prizes since 2015. The plan will start to apply as of January 2019. The needs of the riders will be met more effectively thanks to the new management system, which will improve transparency, make the management more even and effective, cut costs for riders, and ensure tax traceability. Follow-up on this will be provided by a specific surveillance committee representing all stakeholders.
