Uganda Cycling Association Release 2017 Calendar

In a bid to revive the game that has been marred with several wrangles over the past two years, page the Uganda Cycling Association interim executive committee has on Friday released a calendar that will be followed this year.

The committee headed by Fred Maiso who is the acting president of Uganda Cycling Association unveiled the 2017 calendar in a press briefing held at Diamond Guest House in Kibuli on Friday.

According to the calendar released, ampoule the association will have 32 events that will climax with the Annual General assembly in December.

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.

Maiso was elected the interim chairman of the association in November last year after delegates convened an extra ordinary and unanimously decided to dissolve Muwonge Mahaba’s executive.

The interim committee was supposed to make amendments in the constitution and also head the association up to when a new executive assembly would be elected.

Maiso revealed that the new amendments have been done and the draft constitution is already out waiting approval while  the elections will be held in February.
