UCI Athletes' Commission Florian Rousseau

The newly-formed UCI Athletes' Commission discussed technological issues during the second day of their meeting at the World Cycling Centre (WCC) in Aigle, Switzerland, today.
After a training session in the morning, the eleven members, representing all cycling disciplines (road, track, mountain bike, cyclo-cross, BMX and para-cycling), met with the UCI President Mr Pat McQuaid, who explained how the Athletes' Commission fits into the wider cycling and Olympic families.
UCI's Equipment Consultant, Professor Jan-Anders Månson, spoke to the members about technological issues including innovations and different materials used in construction of bikes and components. The discussions continued along the theme of security and technology.
At the end of the day the Athletes' Commission met with members of the press to explain their role in tightening the link between the UCI and the athletes.
France's track cycling sprint coach Florian Rousseau said he was happy and proud to be the first President of the Commission. He said the first step would be to make all athletes aware of its existence, its missions and its role. It would then be up to the Commission to "listen, help and meet their needs."
