ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – The British Virgin Islands’ Cycling Federation (BVICF), is now cleared to participate in cycling events in any discipline worldwide as an Independent body, without prior approval from a secondary body.

The milestone achievement comes as a result of the Territory’s recent acceptance as an affiliate member, of the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI).

BVICF’s President, Mr Darel Christopher, has since been invited by UCI President, Mr David Lappartient, to attend the 187th UCI Congress, to be held in Innsbruck, Austria—to receive the official Certificate of affiliation to UCI.
