Who will win the Guyana Beverage Company Cran-Water Cycle road race set for Berbice today? That question will be answered when the cream of the country’s cyclists don their cycling gear and take to the roads in the Ancient Country for what is expected to be a grueling event.
Even though this is the inaugural Cran-Water event, it is the fourth year that the Guyana Beverage Company is sponsoring a cycle event in the Ancient County which was previously sponsored under the Island Mist brand. And every year the activity is getting and bigger. What started out as a local event for Berbice cyclists only, in the first instance, has evolved into a national open race and a prominent fixture and one of the sought after races on the cycling calendar.
Organized by the Flying Ace Cycling Club (FACC) of Berbice, the 50 miles event will see the riders peddling off from in front of the beverage company’s Berbice outlet at Palmyra at 14:00hrs proceed to No 36 Village before turning back in front of the Nand Persaud and Company Rice Complex and back to its point of origin.
With the cycling season well and truly on an epic battle is anticipated as the riders battle for the lucrative prizes on offer.
Prizes will be awarded to the first six finishers, the first three juniors and the first three females. There will also be rewards for the first four cyclists from the FACC to complete the distance. There will be eight sprint point prizes up for grabs. The female riders will pedal off from Tain Berbice Campus to the finish line.
General Manager Mr. Robert Selman, who was in Berbice for the launch over a week ago, has expresses his pleasure how the event has been organized over the years. Mr. Selman along with other senior officials of the company is expected to be on hand to start the race and distribute the prizes.
The race is being coordinated by Coach Randolph Roberts. (Samuel Whyte)
