Pat McQuaid will face one challenger as he bids for a third term as president of world cycling's governing body.

The International Cycling Union confirmed on Monday that Brian Cookson, president of British Cycling, will be the only candidate to stand against McQuaid in the Sept. 27 election in Florence, Italy.

Candidates had until Saturday to put their names forward.

McQuaid has been UCI president since 2005 but has been under pressure since the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency report last year that led to Lance Armstrong being banned for life from cycling and stripped of his seven Tour de France titles.
