FORGET THE TIME TRIAL, it’s the Keith Yearwood administration that certain cyclists would like to see ride off into the sunset.
Enough is enough now for veteran riders Edward Julien, Greg Downie and Sean Maloney, backed by a group of disgruntled cycling enthusiasts, who are all demanding the immediate resignation of the Barbados Cycling Union (BCU) president in the midst of the sport’s “drastic decline”.
The call was made but a day after coach Colin Forde alluded to a possible boycott of Sunday’s national time trial over concerns about the course’s safety.
“Cycling is basically dead . . . it [is] as we’ve shut the lid on the coffin and all that’s left now is to bury it,” said an incensed Julien in a telephone interview yesterday.
