The  annual five stage cycling road race organized by the National Sports Commission will take place early next month Director of sport Neil Kumar said yesterday.

Kumar also said that one of the decisions taken recently was to have team riding in this year’s race and as such, for the annual three and five stage races, teams from Linden, Berbice,  East Coast and Georgetown will be allowed to compete.

Kumar said this decision was taken in light of Guyana’s participation at the just concluded Alba games in Venezuela where Guyana  ended with some 12 medals.

Kumar said  following the Alba Games a decision was taken that team riding was paramount and would be incorporated into the two NSC-sponsored road races with immediate effect.
