Cyclists protest for sport to move forward

The cycling community participated in a small demonstration over the weekend to show support to the sport and to highlight their displeasure with the current stalemate that has the association in limbo. The elections were postponed in November and January as there are two constitutions that the incumbent president and his competition are citing as the guidelines for the election. The demonstration is timely as the President of the Pan-American Cycling Federation, Jose Manuel Palaez Rodriguez is in the country to assess and settle the situation.  We’ll have more on the cycling demonstration in our Sports Monday Report with James Adderley.

    It’s a shame when athletics, especially amateur athletics, gets infected with politics, greed, and every other bad human characteristic. I hope the mess can be ended, and our cycling organizations can move ahead to support the sport and its athletes instead of the egos and/or wallets of the “leaders.”
