Industrial Safety Supplies commits to ‘One Guyana’ Bartica Cycling Classic


Cycling fans, supporters and the Barticians can be assured of an exciting day of racing come this Sunday (March 5) when the second edition of the ‘One Guyana’ Bartica Cycling Classic, organised by We Stand United Cycle Club (WSUCC), is held.

Corporate support continues to stream in for the event, with the Office Manager of Industrial Safety Supplies Inc., Crystal Kallu, the latest to hand over the company’s sponsorship to the President of WSUCC, Franklin Wilson at the entity’s Camp Street location.

Accompanying Kallu was the company’s Accountant Nyeesha Joseph and CSR Mechaela Hohenkirk.

Speaking on behalf of Managing Director Hemant Narine, Kallu uttered delight at being able to ride with the organising club on this venture once again, as they did for the first edition in 2019.

“This is all part of fulfilling our corporate responsibility of empowering our young athletes by affording them the opportunity to develop by having competitive events. It’s even more commendable that your club is deliberately taking this event miles away from the hub of sports activities in the city, which is a huge undertaking, and we are honoured to be associated with this venture.”

Kallu further detailed that such a move adds to building friendships and camaraderie amongst the athletes and fans as well, noting that the event can become a staple on the sporting calendar in a community that loves sport.

Wilson extended his club’s deep appreciation to the management and staff of Industrial Safety Supplies Inc. for showing a high level of confidence by being an integral partner.

“Without your backing, this event would not have been possible for the second time around. It is partnerships such as these that allow our athletes to breathe comfortably knowing that they would be properly compensated for their efforts. I must also inform you that, resulting from the first edition of this race back in 2019, cycling has grown in a huge way in Bartica and will become even better.”

The winner of the Elite/Senior race will pocket G$120,000 with G$70,000, G$50,000, G$30,000, G$20,000, and G$10,000 going to the second to sixth-place finishers respectively. The Seniors will be riding for one hour, 45 minutes with an additional two laps.

The Masters, Under-45, and Over-45 will be riding together for 60 minutes with an additional two laps, while the Ladies, Juniors, and Juveniles will pedal off the day’s activity from 09:30h and will be riding for 45 minutes with an additional two laps.

Registration is being done at the Professional Key Shop, Carmichael Street, and Chin Chan Cycle Store, Robb Street.
