Turn to NSC
MINISTER OF SPORT Stephen Lashley is extending an olive branch to the Friends of Cycling (Barbados) to reach out to the National Sports Council (NSC) to have any issues they may have resolved.
He made the suggestion during a press conference at his Sky Mall, Haggatt Hall conference room yesterday, when asked to comment on the unravelling issues between the Friends of Cycling and the Barbados Cycling Union (BCU).
Last Sunday, about 140 cyclists engaged on a ride across the eastern parishes, after the original cycling meet scheduled as part of the Barbados Olympic Association’s 50th Anniversary Independence Games, scheduled for that same day, was scrapped by the organisation after threats of boycott from local riders.
This comes on the heels of the ongoing fracas between president Keith Yearwood and his detractors in the BCU. (RA)
