BOA statement of support for Brian Cookson

04 September 2013 / 08:00

Brian Cookson has contributed enormously to the sport of cycling in the UK over the past 15 years, both in helping to deliver international success and growing the sport at the grassroots and community levels. He has represented the sport as a member of the British Olympic Association National Olympic Committee since 1997 and has always shown great knowledge, professionalism, openness and commitment to the Olympic Movement.

We believe that Brian would make an excellent UCI President, provide real leadership in the international arena and help rebuild trust and credibility in the sport of cycling internationally.

BOA Chairman Seb Coe has recently written to each of the UCI Confederation Presidents to express the BOA’s full support for Brian’s bid to lead the UCI, and we will continue to support him all the way through to the election where we hope he will be successful.
