Current UCI President David Lappartient will remain at the helm of the international federation after no opponents were nominated to run against him before the deadline for submissions on June 23. Under the UCI rules, the Frenchman, who succeeded Brian Cookson in 2017, will be confirmed for his second term without a vote by the Management Committee.

The UCI announced the new candidates for the Management Committee, which is made up of the presidents of the five Continental Confederations, the UCI Athletes' Commission president, and 11 elected members.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
