Petition to get mcquaid and verbruggen to resign

Posted on
  • Is there a public petition for Pat McQuaid and Hein Verbruggen to step down and leave the UCI?

    Surely it's clear that cycling cannot make significant gains until they're gone and the UCI recalibrated? However much Vaughters, Millar, Brailsford, Greenedge, Wiggins, Pate etc move us towards the promised land, McQuaid & Verbruggen are tainted to a blood curdling degree by the last two decades and simply leave us swimming is sewage.

    I understand they cannot be proven to be complicit but their handling of cycling in the last two decades has been shown to be farcicle and their inability to accept their own procedual faults and mismanagment is terrifying; meaning even before we get to Kimmage, Landis and countless other preposterous incidents, I can't see how anyone could deny they're driving train wreck of their own making? How they can still be in charge of cycling?

    Surely it's time for people power to initiate the final curtain to the doping era and take back the sport we love?

    I would gladly sign.

  • Hippy

  • That photogenic guy who presents The Cycle Show?

  • It does not exist. I cannot make webpages :(

    PLEASE would somebody set up this petition on the web, it's essential.

  • Or should it be worded better?

    Thats tynan.

  • A question - who do you replace McQuaid with?

    Hippy.

    Oh wait...

  • There's a bigger petition around somewhere - I signed it a few weeks ago. It's not that well-worded either, but better than this.

  • And everyone should read this

    inrng.com/2012/09/how-to-replace-­pat-mcquaid/

    I am not saying we should do nothing, just that nothing we do is likely to work.

  • I think with enough public pressure what the inrng article flags up can be overcome.

    At least one bloke has the guts to speak out;

    cyclingnews.com/news/david-mi­llar-calls-on-verbruggen-to-step-down-fr­om-uci

    Although I don't see how Mcquaid can escape, I simply believe he's Verbruggen's right hand man. Although any moves to remove them cannot state what can't be proven (that they're corrupt, arrogant fucks who've helped to come close to ruining pro cycling) surely the trail of destruction which at the least highlights their incompetence is enough to bring them down.

    I'm going to go find a petition.

  • Thats tynan.

    Yes, that's me, photogenic, a guy and currently presenting The Cycle Show.

  • UK appears to have no voting delegates, unlike the well known cycling nation of Guam!
