Europe votes for Brian Cookson in battle for UCI presidency

 

The battle for the presidency of cycling’s world governing body took a potentially decisive step on Sunday when Britain’s Brian Cookson won a significant victory over his Irish rival Pat McQuaid.

Cookson gained 27 votes to McQuaid’s 10 from the national federations of the European Cycling Union at a special meeting in Zurich. All 14 European delegates at the UCI election on 27 September are now mandated to vote for Cookson, who needs 22 of the 42 global votes.
