Payless Variety Store cycling set for Saturday
On Saturday, cycling action will take place at the inner circuit of the National Park, where national coach Hassan Mohamed will stage the fifth annual Payless Variety Store’s 11-race programme, starting at 09:00h.
As is usually the case with the 11-race programmes, the day’s activities will cater for all categories of riders, ranging from the six-year-olds to the Senior and Veterans.
The youngsters will compete in the BMX Boys 6-9, 9-12 and 12-14, followed the up and coming riders taking the track in the Junior/Juveniles and Mountain Bike races.
This will be followed by rivalry in the Veterans Over and Under-50 categories, which will set the stage for the day’s feature event- the gruelling 35-lap School Boys and Invitational.
Andrew Hicks of Berbice won the main event last year in a time of one hour, 26 minutes, seven seconds, while Nigel Duguid (Juveniles), Ian Jackson (Veterans Under-50), Sean Budhan (Mountain Bikes) and Ronaldo Narine (12-14 Boys and Girls) were some of the other category winners.
Representatives of Payless Variety Store are expected to assist in the presentation of prizes at the conclusion of the races.
