However, because of the rainy condition in the north east of the island, the organizers were forced to scale down the event to 49.5 miles, instead of the 70 miles which would have constituted a national championship.

Adams completed the shortened route from Langley Park to the petrol station at Mount Young, covering the 15 laps in two hours 21 minutes 58 seconds.

Taking the second place was Zefal Bailey, who clocked two hours 22 minutes 5 seconds.

Both also placed first and second in the Junior Category of the race.

Placing third overall and first in the Mountain Bike segment was Lucky Antrobus, who returned a time of two hours 29 minutes 28 secs. Docking in fourth overall was Peter Durrant in two hours 32 minutes 7 secs.

Sunday’s race also saw the BMX cyclists riding 19.56 miles, traversing the route six times.

The top finisher was Casnel Duncan, in a time of one hour 24 minutes 49 seconds, ahead of Tevin Griffith, who clocked one hour 35 minutes 30 secs and Kevron Williams, one hour 42 minutes 23 seconds, to complete the top three places.

Twelve cyclists began the race.(RT)
