November 7/12 9:56 am - UCI Announces Stakeholder Consultation

Posted by Editoress on 11/7/12

UCI President Pat McQuaid today announced that cycling’s governing body is to launch a wide-ranging consultation exercise involving all the stakeholders in the sport.

The consultation will take place separately from the external Independent Commission, which is tasked with looking into the findings of the USADA report on the Lance Armstrong affair, as well as making recommendations that will enable the UCI to restore confidence in the sport of cycling.

The consultation, which will be launched in the first quarter of 2013, will instead look to the future of the sport - and discuss how to bring in lasting improvements to tackle issues of concern within cycling and work together to build a bright future.

Pat McQuaid said: “All stakeholders will be invited to participate in this consultation exercise, which will also look at measures to continue the process of globalising the sport, encourage even wider participation and ways to make the sport even more interesting for spectators."

He continued: “We must all work together to recover from the damage which the Armstrong affair has undoubtedly done to our sport, the sport we all love and cherish."

“While it is absolutely right that the Independent Commission investigates the past and makes recommendations for the future around the issues of doping, our sport is about so much more than that."

“We saw this year in the Olympic Games in London that cycling is one of the world’s most popular sports, both for participants and spectators, and it has a bright future. This is what the consultation exercise will focus on.”

Further details of the consultation will be announced before the end of the year.
