George moves up and interrupts Bailey’s plans

O’neal George overcame a mishap earlier in the season and moved up to category one of the mountain bikers, to whip the runaway leader for the 2013 SVG Cycling Union road races, Zefal Bailey, in last Sunday’s Allan’s Bakery National Championships.{{more}}

Spanning 48 miles/ eight laps of the Orange Hill to the Mount Young gas station, George battled cramps and the rain, to complete the course in 2 hours 24 minutes 43.90 seconds.

Zefal Bailey was second in 2 hours 24 minutes 45.11 seconds and third was Peter Durrant in 2 hours 24 minutes 45.11 seconds.

But while Bailey’s winning streak was thwarted, Niesha Alexander continued her defeat of her lone rival, Crystal Durrant.

Alexander clocked 1 hour 28 minutes 14 seconds, separating herself from Durrant by some time, as she finished in 2 hours 6 minutes 1 second.

Also doing the 30-mile course were the category two road bikers and the mountain bikers.

Curtis Lewis upped his status in category two, as he stormed to victory in 1 hour 26 minutes 56.20 seconds. Second was Martin Bollers in 1 hour 27 minutes 04.10 seconds.

Kevin Bailey lagged behind at third in 2 hours 03 minutes 33.22 seconds.

Steve Ollivierre finished ahead of the field in the mountain bike category in 1 hour 28 minutes 09 seconds. Taking the second place was Shawn Chandler in 1 hour 41 minutes 1.26 seconds and third was Jeff Lewis in 1 hour 42 minutes 13 seconds.

The cyclists return to the same course on Sunday, June 30, for another distance event.(RT)
