Cycling Participation Increases
As Sunday Rides and Races Continue.
St. Kitts & Nevis, January 25, 2009 – Twenty-seven (27) cyclists, the majority of them youths, participated in the Nevis Cycle & Triathlon Club’s most recent club ride. This was a phenomenal number as it signals that the efforts of the St. Kitts & Nevis Cycling Federation (SKNCF) to grow cycling in the Federation are working.
Greg Phillip, President of the SKNCF said that the cycling is a great sport and it is good to see it progressing.
The cycling calendar for 2009 has thirteen (13) scheduled races but more than that number are expected to occur as impromptu races similar to the Charlestown Criteriums will be facilitated and encouraged. On Sunday the latest of these Criteriums took place. Shaun Brear won the Junior Race for the second time, followed by Royston Queelie in second and Tarel Morton in third. Reggie Douglas who edged out James Weekes by the slimmest of margins won the Male category race, Greg Phillip was third.
The next club ride is scheduled for February 1st and happens every Sunday, departing from Oualie Beach in Nevis at 3:00pm. All are welcomed.
Both the St. Kitts & Nevis Cycling Federation and the Nevis Cycle & Triathlon Club thanks the Nevis division of the Royal St. Christopher & Nevis Police force for their assistance with the race on Sunday.
