DUBLIN —

Pat McQuaid's nomination by Cycling Ireland to stand for a third term as head of the sport's world governing body is to be re-considered.

The UCI president has been under pressure since details emerged of systematic doping by Lance Armstrong to win seven Tour de France titles. But McQuaid received the nomination after pledging to overhaul the UCI.

However, Cycling Ireland says its board would hold an emergency general meeting at a date to be determined "to consider matters which have arisen following the decision taken at its board meeting on April 12th to nominate Mr. Pat McQuaid."

Cycling Ireland chief executive Geoff Liffey says details of the meeting will be circulated to member clubs next week.
