By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The 2020 Elite/U-23 Caribbean Championship which was set for this month in Cuba has been moved to the Dominican Republic and postponed again.

“They have changed the location to the Dominican Republic. So far, there is no confirmed date [though] the event has been changed from June to August,” said Orson Butler, president of Cycling Federation of Belize.

“We’re waiting for the Health Department in the Dominican Republic to give the all-clear to have the event in the Dominican Republic. It’s unfortunate, no?”

National Individual Time Trial Champion Oscar Quiroz is the subchampion of the 2019 Elite Road Caribbean Championships in Havana, Cuba.  Quiroz finished in second position clocking 3:10:01 in the 77-mile race, same time as the winner Cuban Felix Nodarse. The next two riders also had the same time. Quiroz rode that race at an average speed of 24.33 miles per hour.

Giovanni Lovell finished 5th in that race 1:46 behind the front four leading a field of 26 other riders which included Belize 2019 Road Champion Ron Vasquez.

Byron Pope and Robert Liam Stewart also competed in that race.

Quiroz and Lovell were 12th and 13th respectively in the Time Trial.

The 2020 Elite/U-23 Caribbean Championship was originally set for last year in Cuba but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, because of increasing cases in Cuba it has been postponed again and moved to the Dominican Republic, but as Butler said, that’s not 100 percent sure yet.

Belize is to be represented at the international event which is a qualifier for the Pan American Junior Games which the CFB expects to attend.

The Pan Am Junior Games U-23 are scheduled for September in Cali and Barranquilla, Colombia.

Other international events the CFB intends to send representatives to are the Junior Caribbean Championship in the Dominican Republic in mid-October and the 2021 Elite/U23 Caribbean Championship in mid-November.
