Pat McQuaid, the head of the International Cycling Union, has stepped down from a key International Olympic Committee panel as he deals with the fallout from the Lance Armstrong doping scandal.

McQuaid is on the committee that is evaluating bids for the 2020 Summer Olympics.

“I have too much going on and I can't afford to be spending two weeks away from the office in March,” McQuaid told the Associated Press.

McQuaid has been replaced by Patrick Baumann, a Swiss IOC member and secretary-general of international basketball federation FIBA.
