Monday, March 31, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: Sunday was a day of sports in the City, beginning with the finish of the 15th annual Junior Cross Country Cycling Classic.

20 young men from several cycling teams kicked off from the San Jose Succotz Ferry and rode for 70 miles to Leslie’s Imports.

For the most part they stayed together until a five-man breakaway was established featuring members of Cayo rival teams BECOL Uprising and Cayo High Road.

A member of the former team, Keion Robateau, showed determination to stay with the main pack even after three chasers moved up from the peloton at Mile 11.

A few miles later he launched the winning solo attack and rode to the tape all alone, ending Cayo High Road’s Zamir Guerra’s defense of his title.

Finishing second was Delon Gentle, Robateau’s teammate, and Guerra came third following a dramatic sprint.

The new champion says the win was unexpected as he had it all to do to stay with the pack. But the defending champion told us that he didn’t have the legs at the end, so if he couldn’t win, he was happy to let a fellow Cayoan do so.

The big event, the 86th Holy Saturday Cross Country Cycling Classic, takes place on April 19.

    But there are certain skills you need to learn before cycling in a group becomes natural
    and enjoyable. Third advantage of good nutrition is that it allows you have
    a fit and healthy life beyond cycling. When you bike France
    you create the opportunity to travel on your own or be part of other
    guests to partake in a bicycle tour.
