David Lappartient elected UCI President

Landslide victory as Lappartient won 37 of the 45 votes by the UCI delegates at the governing body’s congress during the road cycling world championships in Bergen, Norway

In his pre-election speech 44-year-old Lappartient vowed to get rid of “corruption” that has left UCI with a “bad reputation”.

Speaking about his election as UCI President, David Lappartient stated: “I am extremely grateful for the support the UCI National Federations have shown for me today. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for the great responsibility you are now giving me. I am delighted that the votes in my favour have come from all corners of the globe. I would like to congratulate Brian Cookson for his work over the past four years. I know how passionate he is about our sport and I acknowledge his disappointment. Lastly, I want to thank all of those who have helped me over the past few months. I cannot wait to start working for the good of cycling, and I wish everyone a successful remainder of these 2017 UCI Road World Championships in Bergen, Norway.”

Lappartient brings a wealth of experience as European Cycling Union (UEC) president and former French federation president from 2009-2017.

Lappartient has vowed to regain influence in the Olympic movement and promised to push for bans on some medications which could involve the abuse of the TUE system.

Abuses include the alleged use of muscular injections for asthma by Bradley Wiggins that contained steriods before and during the Criterium du Dauphine.

Lappartient has also vowed to overhaul the UCI process into detecting and checking for motor doping, after it was alleged that the current checks were "ineffective".
