The inform Briton John of the United We Stand Cycling Club continued his winning ways when he defeated a competitive field to easily take the cycling event held on Sunday in East Berbice along the Corentyne Highway.
The event was organised by the Club Fiesta, the Jagdeo Racing Stables, DJ Dauren, Jaggernauth Entertainment and Contemporary Events Planning and Décor in collaboration with the Rose Hall Town Council.
The riders pedaled off from the Rose Hall Town Arch to Number 53 Village before turning back to finish at its place of origin.
John, who has been in good form this year with numerous victories, won his second race in two days and his second consecutive race in Berbice. His winning time was one hour, 39 minutes and 21 seconds.
John was dominant as he crossed the finishing line all alone ahead of Marcus Keiler with Deeraj Gharbharan third, Kemuel Moses fourth, Adealie Hodge was fifth and Curtis Dey sixth being the top placers.
As the riders were sent on their way there was some early jostling as they tried to gain the early advantage. As they neared the turn back point it was John that made another move and was never challenged thereafter.
It was not a good day for the Berbice riders as two of their top wheelsmen in Andre ‘Padlock’ Green, who was sixth initially and Andrew Hicks were both disqualified for various alleged infringements.
Junior Niles continued his consistency among the veterans by winning that category from Alex Mendes with Kwame Ridley third.
The junior category was won by Jason Sampson ahead of Ajay Gopilall and Juslin Thom.
The Berbice duo of David Hicks and Steve Bhimsen took the two top spots in the Juvenile category.
John’s dominance saw him winning four of the sprint prizes available with Gharbharan taking two, Moses, Keiler, Christopher Griffith and Paul DeNobrega one each.
The race brought to the fore the need for cattle owners to keep their animals off the road as a few of the cyclists were involved in minor accidents with them that were straying on the road.
