PARIS (Reuters) - Britain's Brian Cookson announced on Friday that he is seeking a second four-year term as International Cycling Union (UCI) president.

"I am seeking the continued trust and support of the cycling community, so we can build on the progress that we have made together over the last four years", Cookson, who was elected in 2013, said in a statement.

Frenchman David Lappartient, president of the Union of European Cycling (UEC), is still considering running against Cookson.
