The program was hosted by the St. Vincent & Grenadines Cycling Federation in early December and Gilbertís participation was funded by the BBA.
This officiating designation is the first step in working towards the UCI International Commissaire title and is a first for the BBA.
Currently the BBA has a pool of 15 individuals managed by Fiona Miller, who have completed a local officiating training program to cover local racing in Mountain Biking, Road Races and Cyclocross.
Gilbert, a Constable with Bermuda Police Service, will now take a leading roll in the BBAís major events and help develop further the cadre of officials.
BBA President Peter Dunne commented, ďAntonís successful completion of this program represents a huge commitment on his part and a major step forward for our officiating capabilities. Having this resource within our organization is an asset of great value and will help us deliver even better events. Hopefully with Antonís assistance we can work to host a similar program here in Bermuda to give even more individuals this potential pathway to furthering their officiating skillset. The BBA extends its heartiest congratulations to Anton.Ē
