Curtis ‘Chappy’ Dey continues to be a model of consistency on the saddle this season.

One week after the Trojan PSL standout placed second in the Three-Stage Independence Road race, he took his talents to the National Park yesterday and sprinted off with the spoils of the feature 35-lap event of the PowerAde multi-race programme.

In perfect conditions for racing, Dey made hay in the sunshine, besting the quality field of riders to take the event in a brisk 1h: 14.56s.
