12th Laparkan Holdings Ltd. National Park 11-Race Cycle Meet
By Franklin Wilson
Team Coco’s Junior Niles was in pristine form yesterday in capturing the feature school boys and invitation 35-lap race when the 12th Laparkan Holdings Limited 11-Race National Park Cycle Meet was held.
Displaying a high level of fitness which has been as a result of consistent competitive riding in the National Park and the many road races so far this season, Niles, Mark Harris and Paul Choo Wee Nam along with Briton John who was dropped after 17 laps, lapped the entire field to underscore their dominance of the race.
Niles, in stopping the clock at One Hour 18 Minutes 53.81 Seconds captured three of the sprint prizes on offer with Harris and Choo Wee Nam claiming two each, while the other went to John.
From the start of the race the quartet set the pace which turned out to be too hot for their rivals to handle, even John who couldn’t keep up after 17 laps.
Hamza Eatsman, Shaquel Agard and Kemeul Moses finished off the top six positions in that order. Niles also rode earlier in the day and placed second in the Veterans Under-50 5-lap contest which was won by Lennox Jackman in 12 Minutes 13.80 Seconds.
Laparkan officials at the presentation thanked the riders for their participation noting that
they are always pleased to see so many youths and older riders showcasing their talent, pointing out that sport is vital for the overall development of young people.
Race organizer Hassan Mohamed also expressed gratitude to the sponsor as well as the competitors for making the event realty for the 12th successive year.
