“The SEA Games Federation has sympathized with us and help us convince UCI president Pat McQuaid. But his response was to talk to Tolentino which the SEAGF did. But he refused because he wants the POC to be the one to talk to him and asked for the license,” explained Cojuangco.

so why did you not talk to Tolentino, if your allegation is true.

just a reaction from this post:

Romasanta explained that under the circumstances, the POC could not make a direct request to Tolentino because of “international repercussions” concerning the authority of a National Olympic Committee. The problem was the POC recognized another NSA president for cycling Mikee Romero who resigned the position the other day.

“international repurcussions” = ego

A press release says “The selfish and treacherous act of Mr. Tolentino in refusing to sign our players’ licenses despite the favorable recommendation of all the participating nations of ASEAN would easily mean the loss of at least four gold medals for our over-all campaign. It is the most detestable and cowardly act of any Fiipino who has no care at all for Philippine flag and country,” the letter said.

This is an effort to pass the blame on Mr. Tolentino who was not offered to sign the licenses of the other cyclists even in a temporary nature. On the other vein, if Mr. Tolentino was offered to sign the licenses, it would be in violation of his
functions, as the cyclists are not members of the Tolentino Philcycling.

There is only one solution to this, POC must recognize the true Philcycling of Mr. Lina of which Mr. Tolentino is only
a successor
by virtue of a valid election recognized by the UCI. If POC can do this, then Tolentino’s Philcyling can then ask a permission from the UCI to call a general assembly, conduct a revalidation of all cycling teams from both ends, conduct an EMERGENCY election and PUT AN END TO THIS. The enemy of this solution is PURE AND SIMPLE EGO.
