HELP ME TO SUPPORT THE PARALYMPIC ATHLETES

PARRABUDDY.BLOGSPOT was started to help find a way for “Adaptive / Physically Challenged / Paralympic Cyclists ” to enjoy riding their bikes on the Daily Route of the famous Pro Tour Race Routes such as the “ Giro d’Italia " and the " Tour de France " !


Through lack of support i have been unable to achieve that goal and unless people decide to assist there is little chance that my 19th season will be any more successful !


London 2012 Paralympics was amazing for ALL , not just those participating but those who followed via the Media !


Since 2009 several other Blogs have been created to cover various other subjects !

Below is a guide to their separate purposes :

In the main Parrabuddy is about “Adaptive / Physically Challenged Sport” and Health Issues.


Skippi-cyclist is about personal issues and Road Safety Issues.


SkippyAus is about matters relating to Oz and some personal memories from my life there.


Tourdafarce & Tourdafrance are about matters relating to the Pro Tour , Racers and some personal experiences during my various visits to ride the Pro Tour routes .


Skippy (blogging) is about a variety of issues on the Internet .


NOT ALL postings arrive in their correct area but I will generally try to separate my views on Doping and Sporting Fraud from Road Safety Issues .



Comments ARE WELCOMED since this shows that those reading are interested in the subject matter ! Enjoy comments made to other blogs so wonder why only " anonymous " posts here !

Over the period of these "Blogs" I have had visibility on Twitter as “Skippydetour” and on Facebook as “Skippy Mc Carthy” where Google usually advise postings on the Blogs as they occur .

When any of you visit these Blogs I hope I am able to add value to your day and provide a source of information if not inspiration . Please consider asking your friends and contacts to add their support as many of the Para Athletes are struggling to find the resources to compete in Events at regional Levels let alone National Levels .


You the reader have the possibility to help these Amazing Athletes in your own way and contacting your National Paralympic Internet Site for relevant info is a good start !

Mc Quaid : How can we get RID OF HIM ?

Disappointing News this morning ! Cycling Ireland has decided to " nominate " for the 3rd Term as President of the UCI , an Irishman , who has failed to protect the Cycling Community , from becoming the "Laughing Stock " of the Sporting Community !

That phat mc splat , has failed to lead the UCI , into calmer waters , is a matter of record ! Even this week we see a reversal of a " UCI rule " that whilst being in place for many years , was essentially ignored , since it was to many a " Nonsense "! Rule 1.2.019 restricts the activities of UCI registered Racers , in ALL levels of Competition to ONLY " UCI Sanctioned " events ! This in essence means that the winner of the 2013 edition of the Tour de France , Bradley Wiggins , should be hauled before a " tribunal " , sentenced to a 30 day sanction and fined , for taking part in a UK event in late 2012 ! Contador , Nibali and another also should be sanctioned for taking part in an event in Dubai , aimed at creating a NEW Event in 2014 , if the penalties were enforced  !

Tiresome to repeat ALL the gaffes and blunders , that phat mc splat has created during the past years , can't even be bothered to look back for the numerous Blog posts , that give further details ! Those that follow Road Racing will know that UCI , in recent years , has been more concerned about the Time Trial Bike Saddle being " Level " , than the " Blood Passport " being unassailable !

 Currently there are reports that this Blood Passport measure , introduced in 2008 , is either not being utilised as often as in past years OR it is being used to " Selectively sanction Athletes " that are from Federations that are on the Outer with UCI . Is there any truth in reports of a possible " Tour of Russia " requiring a " $7 million investment " and a number of Russian Racers being sanctioned for " OOC  discrepancies "?  Plenty of  " smoke and mirrors "doing the rounds in various Cycling Forums "!

When i first met Hein verbruggen ( nein fordruggen ) , he was telling me of how hard the UCI was campaigning to take " Para Cycling " under it's umbrella , yet when you look at the following site , you will see that very little effort is made to treat " Para Athletes " in the same way as the Pro World Tour Athletes :

http://www.uci.ch/templates/UCI/UCI5/layout.asp?MenuId=MTI2MzI&LangId=1

Para Cycling is a way for many who served in " Harm's Way " to rehabilitate , they deserve far better treatment than being treated as 2nd or 3rd rate by the UCI !

Even more to the point , HALF the population are Female , yet under UCI , the number of Annual Professional  Events have been shrinking  ! Sponsors are deserting this Sport , to such an extent that Teams containing the World Champions were folding !

Problem that appears to exist , is the Rules & Regulations , of the UCI , that currently exist . They ALL BUT GUARANTEE those currently on the UCI Board can NOT BE UNSEATED .

TIME THIS WAS CHANGED !

In nominating phat , Cycling Ireland , asked him to CONSIDER the following :

12/04/2013
Press Release

At its Board meeting on the 12th of April, the Board of Cycling Ireland agreed to the nomination request from Pat McQuaid for the President of the UCI.

The Board requested that Pat McQuaid would raise with the UCI Management Committee certain concerns on governance issues which they would consider for tabling at the 2013 UCI Congress. The specific issues are:

1. An independent review of the system of internal controls and processes at the UCI, with the findings to be published and the recommendations implemented.

2. Engagement with Stakeholders to re-write the existing Governance Code and the Code of Ethics, as set out in the Constitution of the UCI.

3. The following proposals are to be put forward to UCI Management Committee for tabling at the 2013 Congress at:
a. A limitation on the period for which a president or vice president can serve in the UCI as follows effective after the 2013 Congress:
i. The maximum number of two four year terms.
ii. No president, vice president or management committee member can serve the UCI for more than 16 years in total over their life time, in any capacity (paid, voluntary or other).
b. That co-opted management committee members are permitted to vote on all matters which management committee members are entitled to vote.


The ONLY thing that phat will consider , now that he is nominated for a 3rd term , is how he will deal with those that he will now  consider , to be detrimental to his efforts to seek election for the 4th Term !

Like nein fordruggen , he will be seeking to influence the Future Progress of the UCI , far into the distant Future .

Cycling Ireland's board , has shamed it's membership , denied them the voice , to which they are entitled ! They have foisted on the Sport of Cycling , for a third term , a person that MOST Cyclists deride !

SHAME ON THEM !


Additional :Saturday PM :

Came across these tweets tonight :


  1. Cycling: on behalf of Ireland, I apologize.
  2. ...that it's the dregs that always rise to the top?



  1. To be honest, I was so angry after the Muppet Show last night I had to get out on my bike. Hadn't planned to go to the race but glad I did.
That's it!!! You mention the Muppet Show and I finally have a nickname for you: Statler and Waldorf! Need to decide which...


Just waiting now for the " Red Kite Prayer " Blog Post for this week , and the " Inrng " article .

Meanwhile my comment to Cycling News Article :

http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/mcquaid-celebrates-cycling-ireland-endorsement


WHO are we dealing with here ? 

  "  James Burn ( aka pat mc quaid )" , the renegade who went to South Africa , as an Apartheid Buster , banned from Olympic Competition ? 

Patrick Mc Quaid , who did such a " snow job " on the board of Cycling Ireland , that like a bunch of pussies , they rolled over so that he could tickle their bellies ? Board of Cycling Ireland , is to be renamed , " The Muppets "! 

phat mc splat , that last week called off " Rule 1.2.019 " and with the left foot , kicked it into 2014 , whilst he had his right foot firmly embedded in his mouth as he asked USADA and WADA to believe that less than 80% of synthetic EPO was not a sanctionable offence when the 2001 Tour de Suisse , lance samples , were investigated by the Saugy Labs? 

Aigle tag Team Duo , that says one thing and does another ! " L.A., NEVER,Never,never Doped " " I can make ANYONE Positive "! " Nein Fordruggen ( aka hein verbruggen ) only allowed " Dopers " , for the good of the Cycling Industry ( Could not find the correct phrase , but you know )!" 

Thought " split personality " was a thing of the past ? 

CONSIDER ? Consider ? consider ? What will HE CONSIDER ? My bet is , how deep to drive the knife , when he gets to be reinstalled for the 3rd term !
