Jhon Hernandez, president of the Regional Bicycle Cross Commission and member of the Bolivar State Cycling Association, reported that the bicycle cross track facilities adjacent to the Venlam Sports Center suffered water theft on Tuesday night.
He explained that the criminals broke the arrival pole to steal the tube, “they destroyed that part and took away a lot of metal material.”
Hernandez explained that he recently executed a recovery plan with a backhoe and work on cleanup days.
“We had the support of Fospuka in the cleaning part, they have been cooperating with us for three days. We recovered the route of the track with our own resources and we installed the water system”, he said.
Despite this material damage, the leader reveals that he has no plans to protect the facilities, as he has made a strong investment in purchasing locks for the gates and no longer has the resources.
