    L'Equipe is reporting that David Lappartient plans to run for UCI President in 2017.

    Lappertient is president of the French Cycling Federation, European Cycling Union and the Professional Cycling Council, and a vice-president of the UCI.

    No surprise there. I think Cookson faces an uphill battle on this and I imagine ASO are going to have a strong influence on the final chosen candidate. I won't mention stalking horses.

    Cookson's complete lack of comment or even being seen since the Wiggins/SKY debacle speak volumes. He lacks leadership and needs to go.

    Interest connect between not flapping mouth when facts are not clear and failure of leadership. Instant judgment, always a helpful trait.

  12. What an odd question. I skimmed through it of course.

    Maybe I'll give it a proper read sometime.

    It's not odd at all. In business (you know, life after the peloton) one thing that has to happen is reading more than just a summary before commenting. The devil is always in the detail. Which is why I now have a habit of actually reading reports properly so any comment which may be asked for is made from a position of detailed knowledge.
     
  14. In which case, thank me for making it available to you.
