Cycling South Africa Announcements – 09 February 2012

1. Cycling South Africa hereby announces the resignation of David Bellairs who served on the Board as Director Recreation. The Board would like to thank David for his service and wish him well.

2. The recent media article announcing the disaffiliation of Pedal Power Association from Cycling South Africa does come as a shock as it precedes the constitution-discussion meeting scheduled for 18 February 2012 where all affiliates will have an opportunity to raise any concerns. Like any other affiliate, PPA no doubt is an important entity and has done a significant amount of work to the benefit of not only those involved in cycling, but to the broader public. We sincerely appreciate the work being done by PPA.

3. As mentioned with the cancellation announcement of the 2012 Tour of South Africa, the financial issues pertaining to the Tour were to be resolved after meetings with the joint Board comprising Cycling SA and Primedia. Primedia have in the meantime issued a letter requesting payment of outstanding finances. Cycling SA will be engaging with Primedia to resolve this matter.
