Another of Pat's accomplishments that has not been mentioned is of course

Global Cycling Promotion SA which promotes the Tour of Beijing amongst other events.

Curious where the World Cycling Centre fits into all this?
#2 The UCI develops and provides most of the riding talent for promoters like the ASO and Giro organizer RCS. It sounds like you are not familiar with the mechanics of promoting an Elite race. You "buy" the race from the UCI. They provide rules, officials and riders. You pay for it. It's up to you to make it profitable.

I have no idea where World Cycling Centre fits in. Doesn't it have a basketball court in the middle? Meaning, I think the UCI is talking up a facility they probably share with other IOC sports.

This can't be real, it has to be a joke, right? He can't be serious

Indeed he is!

He's going for it alright!

If he is elected all members and licence holders in cycling Ireland should resign their memberships or refuse to renew.I am waiting to renew and if he gets in I will not. I will hang my head in shame should he be our elected candidate. As should every member of cycling Ireland.

The Sky team will be upset to lose their number one fan McQuaid.

Hopefully Sky can keep their members on the board.

Judging by this already posted link, http://www.stickybottle.com/latest-n...cling-ireland/ the UCI has very cleverly delayed some administrative meetings until well after the next Vrijman report so they have time to buy/crush anyone who threatens Pat and Hein's position.


It's a elaborate system designed to manifest as little change as possible. Clearly cycling Ireland would have to worry about economic repercussions of not nominating Pat.

Perhaps a more direct route to passing on nominating Pat is to post a list of CI members who would actually vote for the nomination?
