Cyclists in ‘One Guyana’ Bartica Cycling Classic to vie for Trophy Stall top prize
Management of the Trophy Stall has once again displayed it commitment to the development and promotion of sport in Guyana by supporting in a significant way the second edition of the We Stand United Cycle Club’s ‘One Guyana’ Cycling Classic in Bartica on Sunday March 5.
On Tuesday, Saleema Hussain, representing Managing Director Ramesh Sunich, handed over a trophy that would be presented to the winner of the Elite/Senior category, a race that is anticipated to be very explosive given the fact that the country’s best cyclists have all indicated that they would be heading to Bartica.
The event is being held in association with the Mayor and Town Council of Bartica.
Hussain expressed delight that Trophy Stall and Sunich are keeping up the tradition of support for this event. She noted that the entity was very much a part of the inaugural event in March 2019, which was a huge success.
“So, we did not hesitate to continue this support as we are well aware of the positive impact the first event had not only on the community from a cycling perspective, but the fact that many of the youths from Bartica are now holding their own at the higher levels.”
We Stand United CC President, Franklin Wilson in thanking Sunich and Trophy Stall for their unwavering commitment to this event and sports in general, reminded the principals that their partnership along with other corporate entities has silently ignited a positive developmental drive in the sport, in Bartica.
“The Trophy Stall is very much a part of this new momentum in cycling that started two years ago when for the first time, a major cycling event was held there,” Wilson highlighted.
“As a club, we have answered the call to decentralise sports and will continue to work with you and all other major stakeholders to see that our youths are given the opportunity to show what they’ve got and to aid in taking them to the next level so that Guyana can be dominant in the sports once again.”
The likes of defending champion Briton John (We Stand United), Romello Crawford (Unattached), Aaron Newton (We Stand United), Robin Persaud (KFC Evolution), Alexis Mendes (Kaieteur Attack Racing), Warren McKay (We Stand United), Curtis Dey (KFC Evolution) and Paul Nobrega (KFC Evolution), among others, will be battling in the Senior as well as the Masters Under and Over-50 classes.
