International Cycling Union (UCI) chief Pat McQuaid was re-elected for another four-year mandate Friday following a UCI congress on the fringes of the world road race championships.

The 60-year-old Irishman was the only candidate for the post, which he took over from Dutchman Hein Verbruggen in 2005.

A former professional racer in the 1970s, McQuaid has also worked as a cycling coach, was president of Ireland's national federation and was also a race organiser.

During his tenure McQuaid has worked hard to help globalise the sport, especially in Asia, the Americas and Oceania.

The UCI in that time has also broken fresh ground in the fight against doping, introducing the much-heralded biological passport programme for all professional cyclists.
