Felix who was one of Guyana’s first and oldest engineer’s at the time of his demise, worked with Bookers and Guyana Sugar Corporation in Guyana and various parts of the world.
This is the eight cycling event held in his honour. The first two were held in honour of his birthday. It was changed to a memorial event after he passed away. Race time is 12:00noon. (Samuel Whyte)
