February 24, 2014 (Ottawa, ON) – The President of Cycling Canada, John Tolkamp, has been named to the UCI’s Ethics Commission by the UCI Management Committee. The Ethics Commission occupies an essential role as the guardian of the ethical principles of the UCI’s Code of Ethics and supports the functioning of the UCI as a respected International Federation.

The other members of the Ethics Commission are:

  • Mr. Richard Leggat, President
  • Mr. Peter Barth, Member
  • Mrs. Noemi Cantele, Member
  • Mr. Marcel Wintels, Member

Richard Leggat, the current Chairman of Bike NZ, replaces Pieter Zevenbergen as the President of the Ethics Commission.

Mr. Loïc Loutan, a Swiss national, will serve as the Commission’s external coordinator.  He is a specialist in sports law.

Mr. Tolkamp was notified of his appointment earlier this week in a letter from UCI President Brian Cookson.

We congratulate John on this appointment and know that he will serve both Canada and the UCI well in this new role.
