The route for the Guyana Cycling Federation’s (GCF) first ‘Points’ race has been revealed; the starting point is set for the National Sports Commission (NSC) on Homestretch Avenue.
Cyclists will pedal off from the starting point; proceed to Long Creek on the Linden/Soesdyke Highway before returning to Homestretch Avenue for the finish.
While the country’s top cyclists will be sure to turn out in their numbers, last year’s most successful rider, Jamual John will be looking to continue his rich vein of form. Paul DeNobrega will also be present and looking to resume his rivalry with John. The duo had a great rivalry in 2017 and will be sure to provide great entertainment this year as well.
Not to be ignored is the ever evolving Alanzo Ambrose who proved his self to be a formidable opponent last year as he pushed John and company to the limits even winning the last points race of 2017.
The first cyclist to cross the finish line will earn himself a valuable 15 points while second to fifth place will rack up 12, 10, 8 and six points respectively in that order.
