"I’m sorry, I’ve just realised I have some muffin crumbs on my table. Very unprofessional. I am trying to lose a couple of kilos and was planning to have a fruit lunch but I failed and had a muffin. Never mind."
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.
Here's a horse in stockings instead
Cookson's complete lack of comment or even being seen since the Wiggins/SKY debacle speak volumes. He lacks leadership and needs to go.
clearly the Graun has been following this thread!
Interest connect between not flapping mouth when facts are not clear and failure of leadership. Instant judgment, always a helpful trait.
I think the facts are clear; or do you think otherwise?
Cookson certainly thinks they are clear as per my post linking to his comment in the TUE thread.
2016 has been a year of real progress.
It've not read it yet. It doesn't appear to be exactly gripping.
How would you know without reading it.....?
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.
In which case, thank me for making it available to you.
Wasn't sure where to put this, but Hein Verbrugge has died.
He is described in the headline as "a cunning visionary with a dictatorial streak"
