POWERADE 50 miler set for Sunday at West Demerara
Local cyclists will continue their hectic 2012 schedule when they collide on the streets of the West Demerara on Sunday in a Powerade sponsored 50-mile contest.
Organised by National Coach Hassan, the race will pedal off from the Wales Police Station, West Bank Demerara at 09:00hrs, proceed to Bushy Park on the East Bank of Essequibo before returning to Demerara Harbour Bridge for the finish.
Veteran, upright and female competitors will turn back at Uitvlugt Community Centre. As usual, the first six riders overall will be rewarded as will the first three juniors, veterans and upright riders to cross the line. The top two females and first over-60 will also be recognised.
Eight prime prizes will be up for grabs during the course of the event for the junior and senior riders.
Outdoor Events Manager of Banks DIH Mortimer Stewart will be on hand to distribute prizes to the category winners and other top performers.
