Romallo Crawford of The Trojan Cycle club dominated the Flying Ace Cycle Club (FACC) feature 40-mile event yesterday. The race pedaled off from Marks Bridge at 60 Stanleytown and proceeded to Adventure on the Corentyne and saw some 20 riders taking to the starting line.
Ironically, Crawford, who rode the race on a borrowed bike, was so dominant that he also took five of the eight sprint prizes.
As the cyclists got on their way, a three man pack of Syborne Fernandez and Elijah Brijadar of the Flying Ace Club and Juban Crawford of Trojan took an early lead. They were eventually caught on The NO19 straight road by Crawford and Ray Millington. Crawford soon made a break and maintained that lead for a number of miles.
He was eventually caught by his cousin Juban Crawford and Millington on the downward journey.
However, as soon as the two riders caught him, Romallo Crawford made another break and was not caught again as he rode home unchallenged, with only the whaling siren of the Police outriders and the elements as his company to the line at Courts New Amsterdam building at Main and St Ann Street, New Amsterdam.
Ray Millington of the FACC won a tough battle with Juban Crawford to place second. Veteran Wilbur Benjamin outsprinted the pack to place fourth ahead of Elijah Brijadar and Wazim Hassnu of FFCC, with Andrew Hicks of Trojan and Fernandez coming in seventh and eighth.
David Sampson won in the beginner’s category, with 14 year old Simeon Allicock getting a special prize.
In the female category, Deance Welch of Trojan won from Shenika Teixeira.
Juban Crawford took two of the sprint point prizes with Ray Millington taking the other.
The event, which was open to cyclist in Berbice only, was sponsored by a number of businesses in Berbice including Benjamin Sports, Guinness Bar, Furniture World, Lloyd Williams, Home Line Furnishing, Steve Ramsuchit and D. Balram Shane.
The race was organised and coordinated by cycle coach of the FACC Randolph Roberts. (Samuel Whyte)
