AIOCC was created on 19 October 1956 in Milan, at the headquarters of the daily newspaper the Gazzetta Dello Sport and was presided by Jacques Goddet, Director of the Tour de France.

Today it groups together the biggest organisers of cycling races on the world calendar including the three Grands Tours, 24 UCI WorldTour races and 10 women’s races.

Our aims are:

  • to promote and develop cycling
  • to preserve cycling’s heritage
  • to unite race organisers

Our tasks are above all to draft the various Road and circuit calendars in co-operation with the Union Cycliste Internationale.
We also provide our expertise to local authorities.
