Pat McQuaid, the International Cycling Union president, has pledged to continue to improve the sport, despite persistent calls for his resignation.

A day after the pressure group Change Cycling Now called for new leadership and the three-time Tour de France winner Greg LeMond offered to serve as an interim UCI president, McQuaid launched the first phase of a major consultation exercise involving riders, industry representatives and anti-doping organisations.

McQuaid said: "We will work together to tackle issues of concern and build a bright future for cycling."
