Close race expected this Sunday in BCU’s third Criterion
The event, which will be a 35 lap race is open to Seniors, Juniors, Masters and invited riders.
Among the ‘favourites’ for this Sunday’s race are Jason Forde and Philip Clarke.
Forde, who is the brother of Barbados’ leading competitive cyclist Barry Forde, is said to be one of the promising young cyclists in Barbados. Forde won the first Criterion which was at Fontabelle, ahead of Philip Clarke and Gregory Downie. Sunday’s race is expected to suit the young rider who is undoubtedly looking to land a spot in the Barbados team for the up-coming Pan American Games.
Clarke dominated the road season last year and it is understood that he too will be looking forward to being a part of the Barbados team at the Pan Am Games to be held in Venezuela.
Also taking part on Sunday will be Jason Perryman, Don Stoute, Renwick Lashley and the veteran, Gregory Downie. Perryman is said to be one of the top junior riders in Barbados and undoubtedly will be looking forward to a top three finish, while Renwick, one of Barbados’ top sprinters over the years is expected to do well.
A good performance is expected of Master’s category rider, Don Stoute who will be keen to prove the critics wrong that this race is too fast for him. In addition, Downie, the veteran rider can not also be ruled out and could create an upset by winning from the field.
Participating riders will proceed counter clockwise around the Garrison Savanna and then make the left turn at the Playing Park and proceed on the access road past the cannon. The race will continue back onto the main road to complete the lap at the start point.
