Michael Bias v Cycling New Zealand


Non-selection appeal – 2019 BMX World Championships – Cycling New Zealand had applied new selection criteria to riders, and determined that no male BMX riders would be selected – Tribunal found that the legal position was clear and that it should only intervene if there was no basis or justification for the selectors’ decision – new selection regulations had made subjective appraisals clear – the Tribunal expressed concern at the athlete’s and sport’s future, but found nothing which suggested that the selectors had misunderstood or misapplied the requirements of the procedure – the selectors had considered a multitude of things and there had been an exhaustive inquiry by the Selection Ombudsman – appeal dismissed
