Registration closes today for Digicel Breast Cancer Awareness cycle race
The second annual Digicel Breast Cancer Awareness road race featuring the cream of Guyana’s wheelsmen is just one day away.
According to race coordinator and president of the Roraima Bikers Club (RBC), Brian Allen, all systems are in place for the staging of Guyana’s most lucrative cycling event following Thursday’s technical meeting.
Allen told Stabroek Sport yesterday that the Guyana Police Force as well as eight medical personnel from the Red Cross will ensure all cyclists compete in a safe environment throughout the grueling 80-mile race which pedals off in Linden and concludes at the National Park.
The RBC head also reminded that the senior winner of the event will pocket a record $240,000 while the second and third place finishers will cart off $180,000 and $150,000 in that order.
The sum of $50,000 each will also go to the winners of the female, junior and veteran categories.
Registration closes today at Digicel’s head office in Kingston at 14:00hrs.
