Cycling team departs today for Suriname

Alonzo Greaves

A Guyana Cycling Federation team under manager Brian Allen and coach Wayne De Abreu will depart Guyana today for Suriname to participate in the Annual Bigi Bergi Four-Stage Road Race.

The event, which has been organized by team Presto,  will take place on Saturday and Sunday.

Robin Persaud

Yesterday, both Allen and De Abreu expressed confidence in the cyclists, stating that the team was a balanced one and that they expected the team to be among the winners.

The team, though, is somewhat weakened by the absence of Geron Williams, but with cyclists like  Alonzo Greaves, Robin Persaud, Mark Lewis and Enzo Matthews in the line-up, the team should be competing strongly for gold medals.

This race will also serve as preparation for the more recognised and much more competitive Caribbean Cycling Championship to be held in Jamaica from Septemper 16 – 18.

At that championships Guyana is expected to field a full strength team with the inclusion of Warren ‘40’ Mc Kay and Williams.

The Guyana Team to Suriname will be led by Robin Persaud.

Meanwhile in a press release, the GCF stated that it would like to express heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all those who supported their Cycling and Fun Day activity last Saturday and also to apologise for the delay experienced in the serving of lunch.
