https://www.insidethegames.biz/articles/1052311/uci-reveals-list-of-candidates-for-management-committee
The election of the new Management Committee is due to happen during the UCI Congress in Bergen in Norway, scheduled to take take place on September 21.

It will be composed of the UCI President, a position for which incumbent Brian Cookson and France’s David Lappartient are competing, as well as 11 members elected by the Congress and the Presidents of the five continental confederations.

Among the current continental heads are the African Cycling Confederation’s (CAC) Mohamed Wagih Azzam of Egypt, the Pan-American Cycling Confederation’s (COPACI) José Manuel Pelaez of Cuba, and the Asian Cycling Confederation’s (ACC) Osama Ahmed Abdullah Al Shafar of the United Arab Emirates.

Completing the list are the European Cycling Union’s (UEC) Lappartient and the Oceania Cycling Confederation’s (OCC) Tracey Gaudry of Australia.

The 11 other members shall be elected by the Congress with seven members coming from UEC National Federations and one each from CAC, ACC, COPACI and OCC.

Contenders for the UEC spots are Belgium’s Tom Van Damme, Czech Republic’s Marian Stetina, Estonia’s Madis Lepajoe, Germany’s Toni Kirsch, Italy’s Renato Di Rocco, Norway’s Harald Tiedemann Hansen, Portugal’s Artur Manuel Moreira Lopes, Russia’s Igor Makarov, Spain’s José Luis Lopez Cerron and Turkey’s Erol Kucukbakirci.

St Vincent and the Grenadines’ Trevor Bailey, Venezuela’s Artemio Leonett, Colombia’s Jorge Ovidio Gonzalez, and the United States' Bob Stapleton are all in the running for the one COPACI spot.

The trio vying for the sole ACC place are Baharain’s Sh. Khaled Hamad Al Khalifa, Malaysia’s Amarjit Singh Gill Darshan Singh and Indonesia’s Raja Sapta Oktohari.

There are two candidates for both the CAC and OCC spots with Morocco’s Mohammed Belmahi and Seychelles’ Lucas Georges going head-to-head in the former and Australia’s Leeanne Grantham and New Zealand’s Tony Mitchell battling it out in the latter.

A maximum of two co-opted members can also feature on the UCI Management Committee.


More on the Management Committee
http://www.uci.ch/inside-uci/organisation/management-committee-161115/
The UCI Management Committee is the executive body that manages the Federation, acting under the authority of Congress. It meets at least twice a year , headed by the UCI President. Its tasks include executing the decisions of Congress, establishing regulations, awarding the organisation of World Championships and setting up commissions to help it carry out its mission. It also appoints the UCI’s Director General (a position currently occupied by Mr. Martin Gibbs).


With the disaffection with Martin Gibbs, if Cookson loses, then Gibbs will probably also lose his job.


Thanks, good posts. Dare I say if Cookson wins it will be the end of Lappartient on the management committee. Just like the ethics committee last time around, it disappeared from view.

For elective Congresses, an external notary/lawyer, located in the country where the Congress takes place, shall oversee the election process. If this external notary/lawyer observes an irregularity regarding the election, it shall report to the three-member panel of the Ethics Commission present at the UCI Congress who shall determine whether the election shall be cancelled and re-held.


This makes sense of the purging of the Ethics Commission -

Sources told Reuters that Barth, who left his job in April, felt the independence of the Ethics Commission could not be guaranteed anymore.

Welcome to the party Barth brah.

Bergen's local newspaper gives a run down on all the "medicine" used by cyclists. Probably not appreciated by Cookson etc.

Edit - update - Anti-doping taken seriously, says UCI web site on Bergen championships.

It's anyone's guess as to how the election will go tomorrow but I imagine that it will be very close. Most public commentary that I have seen has been critical of Cookson bar Jamie Fuller who likely has a vested interest in seeing the status quo continue. However this will have little impact on how the delegates vote.

Africa 9 delegates 20%
America 9 delegates 20%
Asia 9 delegates 20%
Europe 15 delegates 33.3%
Oceania 3 delegates 6.7%

My take at the minute is that anyone uis better than Cookson even if I know very little about how competent or how strong a leader Lappartient is. Cookson has been useless.

Cookson to announce a new cycling center in Mongolia? :cool:

Daniel Benson: Heard twice (from different) people that UCI election is currently split by one vote. In favour of DL. Still time for lobbying.

Additionally;

It says on p. 101 that the President’s remuneration went from CHF351k to CHF387k, which is about 10%

In Eurosport Portugal transmission were also mentioned the rumours indicating a D. Lappartient advantage. With a more of self-knowledge expression, it was added that almost all the European Federations are expected to support him and some have been absent of meetings as a protest.
I have them as very well prepared for the transmissions when compared with reporters from other countries.

Sorry, been digging around on the web for a "freebie" link - try this
https://www.aftenposten.no/100Sport/sykkel/Det-brukes-jo-smertestillende_-vitamintabletter-og-alt-annet-mulig-rart-som-man-kan-fa-kjopt-pa-apotek-242340b.html

Quite interesting - Malin Hansen Skjelstad, student at University College of South East Norway (their website in English at https://www.usn.no/english/ ), has done a 259 page long study of 10 anonymous Norwegian semi-pro continental level cyclists.

Pain killers, Tramadol, paracetamol, caffeine pills, cortisone, asthma medicine and anything else in the "grey zone". All know about them, some tried.

Also the Italien cycling grades of "paniagua", "chemist" and out right dopers. TUE's are abused as doctors are paid by the same teams that the riders are on.

Stein Ørn, former doctor to Norway's National Cycling Team and Alexander Kristoff's step-father and trainer, is interviewed too and says Tramdol should be banned and cortisones restricted (as per David Lappartient's manifesto).

Norway's Public TV/Radio/news NRK have also a report on Malin Hansen Skjelstad study
https://www.nrk.no/telemark/forsket-pa-doping-blant-unge-syklister-1.13695102

Her Masters study is "Cyclists in the grey zone" and is not about illegal doping but the use of currently legal substances and TUE's. All 10 cyclists said they were against doping, but were using stuff in the "grey zone."

Perhaps the most important piece of information is that the 15 European delegates have been granted the freedom to vote individually. This could be key to victory. In 2012 the European delegates voted as a block and backed Cookson, giving him a firm foundation for victory. This time Cyclingnews understands that it is Lappartient who has strong support in Europe. However, the news that delegates can vote individually could suggest that Cookson has retained more support in Europe than originally thought.


No UK delegates to vote but sounds like BC has got this - if it goes to 23-22 will someone demand a new vote though? Could be some fun and games.

Only one more sleep to go! :cool:

Europe I believe is not voting as a block to avoid any issue of “conflict”, if LLappartient wins by one vote, Cookson will protest and the fact that Europe had to the freedom to vote individually will null that protest.

No chance of controversy. Cookson has maintained the status quo perfectly, and the good old boys who control the federations have voiced no unhappiness.

This explains why Armstrong and Bruyneel are so against Cookson.
Not so much to do with his actions or having at heart the well-being of the sport (tho that might also be the case to be fair), but the main reason seems to be they were promised something with the CIRC and have been screwed by Cookson
