Stuck in gear


Share post:

CYCLING has slipped another gear with the sport in limbo after the council of the Barbados Cycling Union (BCU) refused to call an annual general meeting (AGM) as stipulated by the High Court.

An order was served on the embattled BCU giving it 21 days to call elections, but that deadline expired on Monday.

Attorney at law Larry Smith, who is representing people “interested in the affairs of the cycling”, told the MIDWEEK NATION that he would head back to court for further directions regarding the holding of the AGM and election of a new council where the assistance or the intervention of members of the de facto council is not required.

Smith said he would make an urgent application to the court and seek to determine the best way forward toward having an AGM and putting a new council in place. According to Smith, the de facto council was like a boat without a rudder. (MK)
