Cycling Federation Under Fire

Cycling Federation Under Fire

17:48 2019

Monday, April 22, 2019 –
The Reporter has been unable to get comment from any representative of the Cycling Feration of Belize after that organization came under fire in the wake of the 91st. running of the Cross Country Cycling Classic.

At the end of the Holy Saturday race, three Guatemalans had taken the first, second and third place prizes in very convincing fashion – Julio Padilla, Alex Julajuj and Jose Canastuj. American David Flynn was 4th and the first Belizean, Giovanni Lovell, took 5th place.

Belizean American Justin Williams, a former two time Cross Country champion, was the first to strike out on social media, chastising the Federation for refusing to allowing them to bring a team to assist, and for refusing them access to Belizean prizes despite holding them to the standards of other Belizean teams. Williams went further to demand prizes which he says were due to him from wins in 2015 and 2018, but which had not been delivered by the Federation.

Williams’ commentary opened a can of worms, and other senior cyclists weighed in, including Ray Cattouse and Smart team captain Oscar Quiroz. In a post on Facebook, Santino ‘Chief’ Castillo also expressed his support for the sentiments expressed by Williams.

While there has been no response from the Federation this far, Justin Williams has stated that he nor his brother Cory will be returning to Belize to participate until the Federation revisits its rules and policies. – Accurate & Unbiased News
