Pitallier wants to continue

French Cycling Federation president Jean Pitallier (72) wants to continue for another four years in the position, which he has held since June 2001. The Federation's elections will be held on Saturday at the French Olympic Committee (CNOSF) centre in Paris.

If elected, Pitallier said that it would be his last term, explaining to L'Equipe last year that, "Four years is too short to complete the works that were started and to follow them through. "It is necessary to have presence, perseverance and once again dynamism."
