While there is a small amount of existing research on the topic of professional athlete agents, particularly in North American leagues and international football, there has been virtually no apparent previous literature produced that has specifically examined the agents of professional road cyclists. As such, there are very few existing sources that provide even the most basic information about the cyclist agent market. This chapter first and foremost sheds some light on the levels of agent utilization and remuneration for professional cyclists based on interviews with industry participant experts. The chapter further examines the specific regulation efforts made by the sport’s governing bodies in recent years and their relevance to economic concerns of market power and competition.
