Of course, if this turns out someday to be the industry standard integrated handlebar-computer-braking solution then I'll eat my kevlar-reinforced aerodynamic hat.

    So Lappartient will be backed by the ASO

    Not really sure which way cycling needs to go to get better, Maybe Tom Van Damme might be best

    Do we get a vote?
    If you're a member of your country's cycling federation, you get a vote on who will be that federation's president (normally an indirect one, through choosing delegates). Your country's federation's president (possibly after hearing the opinion of other board members of the federation) then votes for the UCI president.
    So, you kinda sorta do get a teeny-tiny fraction of influence on a vote.

    Of course, the question then is: How many of us are actually members of their country's cycling federation? I'm not, never have. If I got a bigger share of influence on who will lead the UCI, I would actually consider joining - until then, there's little point. I'm not a competitive cyclist myself, I don't need federation membership to participate in some cyclo-tour every odd year.

    I'll start from the basis that I don't think Cookson should even be allowed to stand again. One term is always enough as the head of a sport and It would be good if one day someone somewhere would realise this and so do it voluntarliy or even add it to the laws/rules/constitution of the governing body.

    Who ever does take over at the top what I would like to see is someone who is prepared to only oversee the aspects that the UCI can really control and let race organisers get on with running races.
