ITS A WIN, WIN.

After several deliberations stretching through the afternoon, the legal teams of the Barbados Cycling Union (BCU) and plaintiff Ross Callender, agreed that the young rider will be given permission to ride at this weekend’s Easter International Grand Prix meet in Trinidad & Tobago.

Callender took legal action against the BCU after the governing body for the sport, had refused to give him permission to ride allegedly for comments he made against the union on social media.

When the matter went before Justice Jacqueline Cornelius in number 12 Supreme Court, Alvan Babb, who appeared on behalf of Callender and Team Swift Cycling Club, contended that denying the rider permission to participate in the event was in effect imposing a sanction on his client  without a fair hearing.
