McQuaid at least cared for traditional races, that pretty much makes him better

McQuaid supported the idea of reducing the length of Grand Tours...

"Cookson Reveals He Knew About Chris Froome Case"

https://article.wn.com/view/2017/12/16/Brian_Cookson_reveals_he_knew_about_Chris_Froome_case/

Hmm.... and Cookson simultaneously says that Wiggins' reputation should be "rehabilitated"

More pertinently Cookson said Team Sky's reputation should be rehabilitated even though he knew about Froome's failed test

Cookson's legacy (not much cop anyway) is now fundamentally compromised

To be precise, he said he was informed of Froome's issue the day before he stepped down as UCI president. What a coincidence!!...

Does he really think we are all a bunch of idiots?! What a joke!

Given that Dawg was notified September 20th, I think it's normal that Cookie was informed the same day as well.
Goodbye, Tommeke; thank you for all you have given us!

Well Cookson is not really that long gone. He did allow the monster to be created and it is still hungry and can't be stopped yet.

According to Le Monde newspaper, two french riders tested positive in 2015 and 2017 and cases were swept under the carpet (by Cookson or his vice-president ???)

Maybe the wrong topic, but I wonder why did you not also ask the question why Le Monde made this information public only now...
