Cycling Ireland board member resigns over Pat McQuaid UCI presidential nomination

Former Vice President of the Board of Cycling Ireland Anthony Moran has outlined the reasons for his shock resignation from the post yesterday, saying that he had lost faith in the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) and Pat McQuaid.

Moran stated after last Friday's board meeting in Dublin that he had voted not to nominate McQuaid - who is seeking a third term at the helm of the sport's governing body in September. Moran is believed to have been the only member of the seven-man board to take that stance, with McQuaid's nomination being ratified.
