Cycling fans get ready, the Guyana Cycling Federation’s National Championships rolls this morning.
The Time Trials for all categories (juniors, veterans, elite and ladies will be held today from the Police at Yarrowkabra, proceeds to 10km before returning to the starting point for completion.
The time trial rolls off from 09:00hrs. Tomorrow, the Road Race for juniors, veterans and ladies will be held from 07:30hrs.
The juniors and veterans will race for 80 miles from Homestretch Avenue to Long Creek on the Linden/Soesdyke Highway, while the ladies and juveniles will compete for 52 miles. The ladies and juveniles will turn back in Timehri.
As was the case since 2016, this year, the championships come with a twist as the Road Race for the elite riders will be held eight days after the Time-Trials rather than the customary day apart.
The big boys will saddle up next Sunday on the same route also from 07:30hrs, however, they will proceed to Mobilissa on the Linden Highway. UK based Claire Fraser-Green and USA based, Raynauth Jeffrey won both the male and female senior time-trial and road races last year.
