British Cycling president Brian Cookson poses for photographs during a media briefing session in London, Tuesday, June 4, 2013. Cookson will challenge Pat McQuaid for the presidency of the International Cycling Union in a bid to restore the sport's reputation. Cookson, who had previously backed McQuaid's re-election bid, said in a statement provided by British Cycling that the "widespread absence of confidence in the integrity of the organization" led him to challenge the incumbent.
