Fourth stage to be added
Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport Charles Ramson Jr. has committed to resuscitating the Three-Stage Cycle Road Race; this was disclosed by Guyana Cycling Federation (GCF) President, Linden Dowridge.
During a meeting with members of the GCF yesterday, it was disclosed by Dowridge that the Minister said he wishes to expand the event by adding another stage, a suggestion the GCF is amenable to. Over the years, this event has been the most high profile race on the local cycling calendar, but for some reason the event was halted since 2016.
Speaking with Kaieteur Sport yesterday, President Dowridge said the next edition of this event is scheduled for May 2021. He indicated that he has submitted a budget for the showpiece which will be held over two days in Berbice, Georgetown and Linden.
Dowridge further informed that he has requested of Minister Ramson Jr. the support to re-start competition with an Individual Time Trial. “I was asked to forward a letter requesting same, however, the Minister indicated that he would discuss this with the covid-19 Task Force.”
Dowridge stated that cyclists have been doing personal training and are eager to get back on the track. “The Time Trial will encourage a different style of riding and we can see more aggression from the cyclists.”
He noted that the GCF is happy to have met with the minister and moreso to learn that the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport Cycle Road Race will be back. “This is the premier event on our calendar. All of our local and overseas based cyclists look forward to this event which usually attracts riders from South America and the Caribbean.” The GCF head has also congratulated the minister on his appointment.
