Briton John sets new 35-lap record at National Park


Briton John sped to a time of one hour, nine minutes, 24 seconds to shatter the 35-lap circuit record at Beacon Café’s ‘Paceline’ cycling race at the inner circuit of the National Park.

One day after placing second to Jamual John in the Alanzo Greaves Classic, Briton took his talents back to the National Park and dominated his namesake and other rivals.

The United We Stand standout was part of the initial break to set the initial pace of the race at the front of the 29-man peloton.

After 20 laps of racing, John changed gears and proceeded on a gutsy solo escape as his breakaway mates failed to respond.

Jamual, who dominated the field a day earlier, had to settle for second as he and Robin Persaud started the sprint in the bunch and was inches away from placing second, but Jamual pipped him on the line in a close photo finish to relegate him to third.

Alex Mendes, Marlon Williams and junior rider, Aaron Newton completed the top six rewarding positions.

Persaud (Vets U-50), Newton (Junior), Christian Dudley (Juvenile), Talim Shaw (Vets O-50) and Tandecia Noel (Female) emerged as winners of their respective categories during the multi-race fixture.
