Kemuel Moses and Jamual John were the winners of the first two races of the cycling season in Guyana. Moses won the opening race, which was organised by the Kaieteur Attack Racing Cycling Club. That event was a 50-mile race that started on Carifesta Avenue and proceeded to Mahaica, East Coast Demerara.
John, meanwhile, won the Burnham Memorial Race, which was a 37-miler that started at Carifesta Avenue and headed towards Belfield, before returning to the point of its origin for the finish.
The cycling season is yet to pedal off in Berbice, but the first race for the ancient county is billed for March 20. That race is being organised by the Flying Ace Cycling Club, and only Berbice cyclists would be allowed to compete.
