Hinds victorious in fifth Forbes Burnham Memorial road race

On the back of recent sublime form, Orville Hinds was able to claim overall victory in the fifth annual Forbes Burnham Memorial two-stage road race on Sunday.

The Team Evolution standout placed second in both stages (Kara Kara to Homestretch Avenue and Liliendaal to Belfield and back) and his consistency was more than enough to propel him to the top of the podium.

Last year’s winningest wheelsman started the final stage just three seconds behind virtual leader, Shaquel Agard but with the latter only managing to finish with the bunch and a seven-second bonus going to Hinds for being the stage’s first runner up, (Alanzo Greaves won stage two) he turned his deficit into a three-second triumph.
