Default Cycling Ireland kick the McQuaid can down the road at AGM

http://www.velonation.com/News/ID/13...residency.aspx

Implications laid out by https://twitter.com/irishpeloton as follows:

"Most concerning fact is that he [McGrane] was knocked back, reason being we should wait for the outcome of the independent investigation of the UCI

But the UCI commission meeting which considers nominations for next President takes place August 2013

Outcome of the independent investigation into the UCI is expected in June 2013

Motions for the UCI commission meeting in August must be submitted 90 days in advance…i.e. before the outcome of the UCI investigation."

Add that to the list of suspicious things about the 'independent' investigation.

While I'm very suspicious that the outcome of the report will be determined ahead of time through the drafting of appropriate terms of reference, this just smacks of hedging bets both ways just in case.

Getting rid of Pat changes nothing. Hein is the source.

The difference is that before nobody was really watching, now they have the Cyclingnews forums squad parsing every action. Much harder to run their "chum-ocracy" under these conditions.

I agree. Hein has more power and influence than he should.

Eh? I'm guessing you were joking but I'm pretty sure they now have the worlds press watching their chumocracy (with some of the press using this forum as a frame of reference).

Such an exciting story that transcends cycling, even Hollywood are interested.

fun article at Cyclismas: UCI announce stakeholders in consultation exercise
Quote:
It’s been stated that the commission will have a lawyer, an accountant, and a sports administrator who will not have involvement in the cycling world.

“They will have no involvement in the cycling world. We didn’t say that they wouldn’t have close ties to us in some form or fashion, though. And frankly, we have to have people in these positions that we know we can trust to make the right decisions in our favour,” continued McQuaid.
