In 2021 – 121 years since the inception of the UCI, the world governing body for cycling – why are things such as women finally being granted professional licences, openly gay athletes, and Black-owned teams making news?!?
And why are things such as the UCI promoting and supporting countries and regimes who imprison people for terrorism because they dared to champion human rights not making headlines?!?
That the former is looked upon as “progress” (and the latter simply ignored) shows the UCI have failed miserably for 120 years (and without accountability) to create an empowering and positive structure for cyclists, not to mention fully disregarding their own Constitution and vision statement.
/end rant…for now.
