Thank God that bumbling idiot has gone. I'm sure Froome's career will suffer as a result, as will team Sky. They'll probably have a very unfortunate run of injuries or something else off the bike that prevents them dominating next year. Cycling should be interesting to watch again for that reason alone.

The landslide nature of the victory is a huge surprise given that Cookson had 4 years to manoeuvre himslef into an unassailable position to get re-elected. His over-confidence came back to bite him (or was it just false bravado) but I don't think too many will be sad to see him gone.
 
Lolz. ASO's guy, the guy who almost ended women's racing in France, who was heavily backed by Bruyneel and HWMNBN, and lobbyied for by the Big Man himself, is in by a landslide! Guess we're really going to test out that title hypothesis.

I call shotgun on setting up Kimmage's new legal defence fund.

Let’s get rid of the iPads and get Froome’s wheels checked today :arrow: :eek:

Its like hearing that some douchebag crimelord has been taken out by police.

Sure, someone equally horrible may replace them, but let us all rejoice for today that the witch is dead.

Have you been watching Narcos too?
 
Crookson GONE!!!
SKY management shouldn't be happy with that outcome one bit :D

Hope the election of Lappartient brings a "power balance" sacked by the UK & SKY grip, so the spot as a whole can appear somewhat "credible" - specially by looking deep into the motor doping matter & hunting down the cheaters, & facilitators of that technology..

I think that amounts to a resounding vote of no confidence in Crookson's tenure.

Well, won't it be fun watching the runners and riders in 2018!

French winner in 3,2,1...?

For sure, Sky bought off ASO in 2012 and are still handing over the brown envelopes.

New UCI President, SSDD.
