CYCLING leaders led by Tagaytay City Mayor Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino and former Philippine Sports Commission chief Philip Ella Juico have been invited to appear before a Congressional hearing on Feb. 15 to shed light on the leadership dispute in the association.

The inquiry will be held by LPGMA Party List Rep. Arnel U. Ty who filed House Resolution 766 last Jan. 31 asking the Committee on Youth and Sports Development to investigate, in aid of legislation, the present state of the PhilCycling.

The inquiry also intends to look into the poor performance of Filipino riders in the Guangzhou Asian Games last year and determine ways to improve their showing in local and international competitions.

Also invited to the hearing are Philippine Olympic Committee president Jose Cojuangco Jr. and PSC chairman Richie Garcia.

Tolentino is recognized by the Union Cycliste International, the international federation for the sport, but his leadership is not recognized by the POC.
