Cyclists set to battle for supremacy at Father’s Day showdown

With the likes of national champion Romello Crawford, Raynauth Jeffrey, Michael Anthony, Jamual John, and Briton John slated to be absent, Sunday’s upcoming cycling event is set to see some new riders coming to the fore.

The Father’s Day (June 20) contest will see riders battling for cash and trophies in a 44-mile road race in West Demerara. The event will pedal off from 08:00h at Schoonord, proceed to Parika and return to the point of origin for the finish.
Team Evolution’s Paul DeNobrega, who was hot in the National Cycling Championship, and his team-mates, Christopher Griffith and Curtis Dey are favourites to come out victorious. New riders are expected to step up to show their abilities.

The collaborative race effort, involving Banks DIH Limited brands Malta Supreme and Rainforest Waters and Carlton Wheelers Cycle Club, will see the first six overall finishers being rewarded for their efforts with trophies and cash prizes.

The top three finishers in each of the following categories – juniors, juveniles, veterans, and ladies – will also be rewarded. The Carlton Wheelers-organised race was last held in 2019, owing to restrictions stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. The Club is awaiting confirmation from the COVID-19 task force, which gave approval for some major cycling events in May.
