LeMond wants to run UCI after Armstrong scandal
LONDON (AP) — Greg LeMond says the President of the International Cycling Union can't remain in his job while a panel examines possible links between the organization and the doping case involving Lance Armstrong.
The three-time Tour de France winner said after Change Cycling Now's first meeting that he would be willing to run cycling in the interim.
"I would love to be part of the process of change and if that means as interim president then I would be willing to do that," LeMond said. "I said if we can't find anyone more qualified, I will do whatever I can to help change the sport. I am definitely not pushing myself ... cycling needs radical change, it needs new leadership."
Before the Change Cycling Now meeting in London, the UCI announced Friday that a three-man panel will scrutinize President Pat McQuaid and his predecessor Hein Verbruggen over their relations with Armstrong.
