Second leg of Time Trial Series heads to Linden on Sunday
All systems are set for the second leg of the Time Trial Series in Linden on Sunday (December 6). The race will start at 09:00h at Amelia’s Ward (in front of KD&J Supermarket), proceed to Moblissa Hill and return to the start point for the finish.
Racing Secretary of the Guyana Cycling Federation, Malcolm Sonaram, said they are anticipating some competitive times, and a large number of riders are expected to compete.
While the route for Open and Veterans will see them turning at Moblissa Hill, covering a distance of 13.5 miles, the Junior/Juveniles and Females will turn at Bamia Hill, a race distance of 8.5 miles.
The organisers are encouraging online registration, but interested riders can also sign up by calling Jeffrey Yearwood on 688-2995.
The third and final leg will be held on December 13 in Berbice, starting at 09:00h in front of Benjamin Sport and Fitness Centre at Fyrish, proceeding along the Number 19 road and ending at GUYOIL gas station at Palmyra.
The first leg in Georgetown was won by the experienced Marlon ‘Fishy’ Williams on November 22. That race started at Sparendaam, proceeded to the Kitty Roundabout and ended in front of the COVID-19 Hospital at Liliendaal.
As was the case on the first leg, all cyclists would have to undergo a temperature test. Additionally, a sanitising station would be set up and face masks would be made available.
Sonaram said the Federation’s desire to ensure all officials and riders are safe on race day has been boosted by the recent donation of sanitisers, a temperature gun and G$50,000 from the Guyana Olympic Association (GOA).
He added that the cycling fraternity is grateful for the assistance, highlighting that every effort would be made to comply with the current national COVID-19 measures.
