The kids-tour takes place. It can take place because BDR and BRV lose in court.
Today, the Frankfurt/Main Regional Court ruled in favour of the children and the original kids-tour. The organising team is allowed to use the name kids-tour. The presidents Rudolf Scharping | BDR and Claudiu Ciureo | BRV have to give up their resistance.
It was with relief and joy that the organising team, Wheel Divas, received the call from lawyer Roland Gall | Schick und Schaudt Rechtsanwälte PartG mbB Stuttgart today. For all opponents of the kids-tour it is a pitch black day. And in this respect it is a victory for the children, our offspring, reason, decency and the law. It is a good day for the children and all active participants as well as for the more than 40 teams that have registered in the meantime.
Attorney Gall is a specialist in sports law. He had advocated a lawsuit because the BDR and the BRV were not prepared to see eye to eye despite the breach of the law.
Gall convinced the Regional Court Frankfurt/Main | Chamber for Commercial Matters in the preliminary injunction with only a few arguments that the Berlin Cycling Federation and Bund Deutscher Radfahrer have to give up their resistance. They have to register the kids-tour in the official register rad-net. Furthermore, the orga-team is expressly allowed to use the name kids-tour.
This was preceded by weeks of long and fruitless talks, a lot of communication between all parties involved and a high degree of stalling tactics. Among those involved were Berlin President Claudiu Ciurea, Vice-President Robert Förstemann and "road expert" Jörg Wittmann and the representatives of German cycling, General Secretary Martin Wolf and BDR Vice-President Günter Schabel. Its President Scharping did not even report back. All of them were not prepared to give up their legal position. This was despite the fact that for Schabel and Ciurea in particular, the breach of the law was obvious with reference to the sporting regulations. Sina Päske of Wheel Divas e.V., the organiser, had no other option but to go to court and announced this step to Schabel.
Now the organiser Michael Michael Lemke will re-advertise the 28th International kids-tour at rad-net. It is to be hoped that this will bring the tour into calmer waters.
Sina Päske now has to write to the Landessportbund Berlin and other sponsors, because the BRV had tried to get funding from them or from the Rapha Foundation by using a wrongly declared kids-tour, which should have been the Youngster Race. The Youngster Race is not a kids-tour. And the kids-tour is not "former". Those who claim this like Ciurea or Wittmann want to deceive.
By the way, the BDR and the BRV now have to share the costs for this necessary court case at the regional court in Frankfurt/Main. It is to be hoped that the perpetrators will learn from the damage.
The kids-tour takes place. Only the result counts.
