The 4th Annual Banks DIH Aqua Water sponsored 40-mile cycle road race in the Ancient County of Berbice will be staged on Sunday June 10.
Organised by the Flying Ace Cycling Club (FACC), Banks recently handed over the sponsorship cheque to coordinator and coach of the Club Randolph Roberts. The event will be open to cyclists of the Flying Ace Cycle Club only.
Sales Manager Joshua Torrezao acknowledged the contribution the club has been making to the development of young cyclist’s in Berbice and pledged the companies continued support for the event.
”Sports is one thing that will help to develop our country. If our youths develop themselves then our county will develop. We are happy to be doing this for the past ten years.”
He promised that this year the event will be bigger and the company has decided to increase the sponsorship package.
Roberts, in thanking Banks DIH stated that the company is one for all seasons. “You have over the years showed how truly committed you are in sports, youth, community, and education development.”
“This sponsorship offers us a chance of having competition which is essential if the cyclists in Berbice are to be able to compete and win against others. This race allows us to compete against ourselves and we are very grateful to Banks for that.”
Also at the presentation ceremony was Banks DIH Berbice Regional Manager, Reggie Matthews.
The race will pedal off at 09:00hrs outside Banks DIH’ New Amsterdam Branch, proceed to Adventure on the Corentyne and then back to the place of origin for the finish.
The defending champion is Neil Reece while Merica Dick is the defending female champion. Prizes will be awarded to the first six finishers as well as outstanding riders in the veteran, junior, juvenile, female and 12-14 categories. (Samuel Whyte)
