Share This Story



The future of competitive cycling will have plenty of American input after seven riders and officials from the U.S. were chosen to fill nine spots on various UCI commissions.

Mike Plant, who was recently re-elected to the management committee for the sport's global governing body, was appointed Monday to the Pro Cycling Council. Plant also was chosen to serve as president of the Cyclo-cross Commission.

Olympic bronze medalist Georgia Gould will be a cross-country representative on the Mountain Bike Commission and serve as the mountain bike representative on the UCI Athletes' Commission.

USA Cycling's Sean Petty was chosen for the Road Commission, Geoff Proctor to the Cyclo-cross Commission, Karen Bliss to the Women's Commission, reigning World Cup cyclo-cross champion Katie Compton as a cyclo-cross representative and Tim Blumenthal to the Cycling for All commission.
