Row Intensifies Over Pat McQuaid Nomination To Cycling's UCI Presidency
Published July 31, 2013
GOING TO COURT: The LONDON TIMES reported the Swiss nomination is being challenged by three members in court on the basis that the endorsement was "unconstitutional and made without proper authority." The costs of the court case are being "part-funded by" sportswear firm Skins, whose CEO Jaimie Fuller launched campaign group Change Cycling Now. A Skins statement said, "The decision to endorse is tainted on both procedural and substantial grounds and constitutes a clear attempt by Mr McQuaid to circumvent the fact that Cycling Ireland, his own national federation, has democratically decided not to present him again for re-election" (LONDON TIMES, 7/30).
