Change Cycling Now group to pressure UCI

Doping syringe

Cycling's governing body, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), is facing new pressure to change the sport in the wake of the Lance Armstrong doping scandal. On Sunday and Monday, the newly formed Change Cycling Now group will meet in London to discuss its battle plan.

Change Cycling Now said in a statement: "[It] is holding the UCI to account for alleged mishandling the sport's global image in the wake of the Lance Armstrong doping scandal and will discuss proposals that offer an alternative approach to re-invigorate a sport that is suffering from a globally damaged reputation."
