Cookson is some clown to have in charge. Gone into hiding as per usual since the further revelations at Westminster last week.
Is he worse than McQuaid. I'd say he's definitely no better and lacks any kind of authority or leadership. Has shown absolutely no desire to change the culture within cycling.
Well, since the UCI President has to come from the management committee, he wasn't ever going to do anything to change the culture. He liked the culture just fine.
Current affairs suggest ASO/Lappartient are well positioned for the next election.
I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest Mr. Lappartient has a big money outside sponsor for a new WT team based in France. Who will, remarkably, become grand tour and Olympic dominant in a 24 months and Paris wins the summer games bid. Crazy!
