In a bid to revive the game that has been marred with several wrangles over the past two years, page http://clearlakefestival.ca/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-ms-themes-list-table.php the Uganda Cycling Association interim executive committee has on Friday released a calendar that will be followed this year.

Events roll off as early as 26th January with the national trials in both the men’s and women’s category.
Maiso is confident that at least sanity has been restored and the events will go on as planned.
“I’m happy that we have put the wrangles aside and decided to push cycling forward, ailment ” he said.
“Last year was an embarrassment to most of us but I’m glad we have drawn the calendar in time and I believe it will be followed to the dot,” added Maiso.
