'Change Cycling' Group to Pressure UCI

Ashenden, Walsh among members

A new group with the stated aim of changing pro cycling and it's governing bodies will meet for the first time in London this weekend. Change Cycling Now, which launched on Tuesday, counts several cycling personalities among its members, including journalist David Walsh; doping expert Michael Ashenden; and Jaimie Fuller, the chairman of clothing manufacturer and erstwhile UCI sponsor Skins.

"It would be easy to sit around and criticize and accuse, but we shall be discussing positive ways to effect the future with changes that can move us back toward a sport that has integrity and is also clean and credible," Fuller said.

Along with journalist Paul Kimmage, Walsh and Fuller are currently pursuing legal action against the UCI—Fuller for alleged damaged business to his company's reputation, and Walsh and Kimmage in relation to a libel case the governing body filed against them.
