UCI Election Presidency

Dear friends,
 
The 45 voting delegates, representatives of the 189 affiliated national federations, have elected me to the Union Cycliste Internationale Presidency with a great majority, at today’s Congress in Bergen.
 
I would like to thank them for their trust and for supporting my program for the future of our sport. I am honored to lead our international federation and will endeavor to meet the commitments I made. Cycling has a great future and together we will make it the sport of the 21st century. Thank you for joining me in this journey.
 
I wish all the riders and supporters a great Road World Championships this week.
 
Thank you all and ‘Vive l’Union Cycliste Internationale !’

David Lappartient
