The inform Balram Narine continued his dominance on the roads in Berbice when he rode away with the Flying Ace Cycle Club (FACC) Pre Father’s Day 40 miles cycle road race which was held last Sunday along the New Amsterdam/Canje/East Coast Berbice and Corentyne Highway.
The event which was for club cyclists only began at 10:30 hrs. The cyclists pedaled off from the junction of Main and Alexander Street in New Amsterdam; proceed along the Corentyne Coast to Adventure Police Station before returning to finish at its place of origin.
Narine was dominant as he won with ease in a time of one hour: 45 minutes from a field of 16 riders. Riding in second was Clement Doris with Steven Fernandes pacing third ahead of Donovan Fraser fourth and Odrel Ross Fifth.
Of the six prime point prizes available, Narine rode away with five, while Ross copped the other. Narine was always in the front bunch and held the lead for most of the race but was hauled in by the casing pack on most occasions. However, on their way back he made a jump in the vicinity of the Canje Bridge and was not caught as he won by about 200meters.
Over 60 riders Daniel Rigby and Calvin Persaud were given special prizes for their efforts. The budding cyclist was presented with a special prize by the owners of Rockefeller Sound System for his outstanding ride.
Among the donors were the Fix It Electronics, Gadget World and Rental, J Supermarket, North West Trading and John Lewis among others.
The coordinator was founder of the club and Coach Randolph Roberts. The FACC remains one of the top and most active cycling clubs in Guyana and organises almost all the cycling events in the Berbice.
