By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Kent ‘Bob’ Gabourel on Sunday morning won the 1st official Weekend Warriors cycling race after the nearly 14-month COVID-19 lockdown in one hour, 52 minutes and 27 seconds.

The 40-mile race organized by the Weekend Warriors’ Edison Usher was run on the John Smith Road from the Mile 8 roundabout on the George Price Highway to the Philip Goldson International Airport Road roundabout.

The race covered the distance in four laps, starting and finishing by the entrance to Western Pines.

“Weekend Warriors racing is back in full effect,” Edison Usher posted on Cycling Live Belize. “After over a year of being put on hold due to the Covid pandemic, we are happy to host our first official event today.”

According to Jerome ‘Comogys’ Williams, Gabourel, who came from San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, for the event and road for Team Cycology, was 11 seconds faster than Vallan Symns of Kulture who clocked 1:52:38.

Eric Morales of Future Innovation was 3rd in 1:53:26.

Digi’s Barney Brown, led a pack of eight, finishing fourth in 1:55:30. Kaya Cattouse who rode in 5th and Cycology’s Dwayne Wade who was sixth, had the same time as Brown and the others in the pack.

It stands to reason Kaya, who is preparing for races in the United States later this year, was the winner of the Women’s category.

Santino ‘Chief’ Castillo was 7th overall and winner of the B Category.

His teammate Leroy Casasola was 8th, Edison Usher of M&M Engineering 9th, Sydney Belizaire of Future Innovation 10th and Kenneth Butler of FT Williams 11th. Butler was 2nd in the B Category.

M&M Engineering’s Nicole Gallego was 12th in 1:55:48 and second in the Women’s Category.

Jerome Wade who won the C Category in 1:59:45 was 16th overall. Manuel Esquiliano was 2nd in the C category in 2:02:02.

In total, 20 of 33 riders completed the first race after the lockdown.
