Anthony takes junior title
Many expected a keenly contested affair, but the feature 30-lap race of the 17th Troy
Humphrey Memorial Cycle meet was called off yesterday after Marlon “Fishy” Williams was not allowed to take part due to an internal issue between the cyclist and Roraima Bikers Club (RBC) which resulted in an untimely end to the event.
After Williams was debarred, three cyclists started the race, but others remained at the starting line in support of Williams and the race was eventually called off due to their refusal to clear the inner circuit of the National Park.
However eight races were successfully completed earlier. Michael Anthony grabbed the junior 20-lap race after enduring stern competition from his rivals. Mark Harris placed second and Mario King third.
Anthony also won two of the five prime prizes, while Harris and Raul Leal with two copped the others. Romello Crawford overpowered his opponents to win the juvenile 5-lap race; Andrew Hicks took the runner up spot and Christopher Griffith third.
The over-50 veteran race was taken by Linden Blackman, ahead of Virgil Jones and Lancelot Rose respectively. Ozia McCauley took the honours in the mountain bike event, Keon Budhan finished second and Seon Budhan third. Jeremiah Harrison carted off the lone BMX race, beating Deoraj Goberdhan and Alex Leung into second and third positions in that order. Junior Niles dominated the U-50 segment, Jaikarran Sookhai placed second and Wilbert Benjamin third.
Geron Williams came out victorious in the win and out contest ahead of Hamza Eastman and Raynauth Jeffery correspondingly.
Teshawanna Doris captured the female race ahead of Ronella Samuels. At the presentation ceremony a number of Roraima Bikers Club riders were rewarded handsomely.
