Laparkan Holdings cycling set for Saturday
The inner circuit of the National Park is the venue for this Saturday’s 12th annual Laparkan Holdings 11-race cycling programme, set to pedal off at 09:00h.
Majority of the country’s top riders are expected to take to the starting line, creating an avenue for a very competitive day of racing at the nation’s premier cycling circuit.
A new winner will be crowned in the feature 35-lap School Boys and Invitational race since last year’s winner, Alanzo Greaves, is currently serving a one year suspension from the sport.
Greaves had clocked one hour, 19 minutes, 21.47 seconds (01h: 19m: 21.47s). Other winners from 2015 were Christopher Griffith (10-lap Junior/Juvenile), Shameer Baksh (5-lap Veterans U-50), Sean Budhan (5-lap Mountain Bike) and Ronella Samuels (3-lap Boys and Girls).
The day’s activities are being coordinated by national cycling coach Hassan Mohamed in partnership with the Carlton Wheelers Cycle Club. (Avenash Ramzan)
