Grass Track Riders bracing for exhilarating action at Mongrippa Hill
The best athletes in the Grass Track arena will collide as part of the sports programme for Bartica Easter Regatta at the Mongrippa Hill Track Saturday.
Organised by the Red Earth Riders Sports Club in conjunction with the Mayor and Town Council of Bartica, the likes of homeboys, Andrew ‘Dare Devil’ Wong, Dave Young, Bobby Rasul, Dale Hareen and Steven Vieira will all be on show as they seek to out rev each other.
Last year’s event was exciting but the organisers are promising an even bigger and more competitive event this time around with riders from Essequibo, East Coast Demerara, Georgetown and Linden confirmed to throw down the gauntlet to the homeboys with lucrative cash prizes and trophies on offer in the 14-races carded for the day.
