He had a golden opportunity on election, and if ever there was a mandate for change it was the Armstrong ban and confession. What a wet fart he has been.

Cookson didn't get the £77,000 of UKsport money towards his campaign this time, and he also had people wanting to see the back of Gibbs, who had rubbed a lot of people up the wrong way. But a big part of it may have been to do with the dubious success of Team Sky.

That he did. But he was so fixated on previous corruption to not notice how new corruption was operating. Additionally his management by press releases was appalling.

Prior to not noticing things at the UCI our friend Brian was honing his not noticing skills at BC...

...like that time Uncle Brian failed to notice Peter King's 2012 culture of fear report

I mean, actually, really, Cookson's legacy?

It's Froome's positive and likely ban.

McQuaid’s problem is he personally got involved in each doping case and publicly commented. Cookson pretended doping didn’t exist and buried most in the back pages of a PDF file. He avoided at all costs a high profile cyclists being suspended in favour for 37 year old Iranian cyclists.
