CPA threatens to sue TCA citing false information on prize money management system

The Cyclistes Professionnels Associés (CPA) has expressed its intent to take legal action against The Cyclists’ Alliance (TCA) for what it described in a press release as ‘defamation’ citing false information after TCA published concerns and asked important questions about the UCI’s Centralised Prize Money Management (CPM) system for professional women’s cycling that launched in January.

“After reading the latest note published by The Cyclists’ Alliance, the Association of Professional Cyclists reserves the right to sue the TCA for false information disclosed with the clear intention of defaming the CPA and manipulating the riders. The fake news published under the title Centralized Prize Money Management System which this year extends to women’s professional cycling, demonstrates the lack of credibility of the TCA on this topic,” wrote the CPA.
