By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belize is off to a good start in the Merida MZ Cycling Tour as 15-year-old Dion O’Brien finished in second place in the Stage One individual time trial.
O’Brien is participating in the Junior Category of the Merida MZ Tour started today along with four other Belizean cyclists.
They are Dwayne Wade, Wassani Castro, Jafari Castro, and Henry Li who are competing in the Professional Elite category which also has a time trial today.
The five riders traveled to Merida on Thursday, March 11.
Wade said that since competitive cycling is not yet allowed here, they are taking advantage of the invitation sent by the MZ Tour organizers.
The MZ Tour is a three-day three-stage race held around the city of Merida. It was originally planned for early January.
The first stage is a 20K individual time trial on Friday, March 12, the second is a 160-kilometer race (100 miles) on Saturday, and the third is a one-hour criterium on Sunday.
The team, traveling independently, returns on Sunday after the tour is over.
