The Kingston area will be a hive of activity on Sunday when the Roraima Bikers Club (RBC) stages its fifth event for the year around the Seawall Bandstand, pedaling off at 10:00 hours.
The club will be collaborating for the first time with Bryden and Fernandes, a subsidiary of the John Fernandes Group of Companies, to stage the 10-race event.
President of the RBC, Brian Allen, said the aim of utilising the Seawall Bandstand is to generate spectators’ interest in the sport, and he’s pleased that Bryden and Fernandes has seen it fit to assist in this regard.
Earlier this month, the RBC, in partnership with the National Milling Company (Namilco), attracted a massive crowd for the 10th annual Caricom Day event, held around the Seawall Bandstand for the first time, and Allen is confident Sunday’s activity will be just as successful.
Leading cyclists from across the country will compete in the main event, the Bryden and Fernandes Classic, which will go for 30-laps, and carries a top prize of $10,000. The top six finishers will receive cash incentives, according to Allen.
Other races carded for the day include the 12-14 Juveniles (three laps), Junior/Category Four (five laps), Category 1-3 (five laps), Veteran Over-50 (five laps), Veteran Under-50 (five laps), Team Time Trial (four laps), Win and Out (eight laps), Mountain Bike Open (five laps) and Female Open (five laps).
The top three finishers in these races will collect cash awards.
At a simple presentation ceremony, Marketing Director of John Fernandes Group, Bernie Fernandes, handed over a cheque for an undisclosed as his company’s sponsorship to Allen, noting that they are pleased to partner for the development of cycling.
