Pat McQuaid Interview Part 2

Here’s part 2 (of 5) of Canadian Cyclist's interview with UCI President Pat McQuaid. This is a great segment. McQuaid talks about something that’s really been bothering us trackies for the past year: the Olympics. McQuaid really breaks it down as to why and how the UCI and IOC downsized the Olympic track cycling program. He explains why they decided to axe the Madison (cuz it’s confusing to watch) and says he understands why people are upset that they dropped the Individual Pursuit. He does leave us with a glimmer of hoping saying that they’re going to be working on getting another endurance event added to the program for 2016 once the London Olympics are out of the way. Bring back the Individual Pursuit!
