By Rubén Morales Iglesias: For the first time Belize will have seven riders competing in Intelligentsia Cup in Chicago.

The Intelligentsia Cup is a ten-day cycling event held in and around Chicago annually. Racing starts on Friday, July 16, and runs until Sunday, July 25, this year. It is comprised of nine days of criterium racing with a one-day break.

Though the race is mainly for riders from the United States, Belizeans are now participating in the ten-day event.

Kaya Cattouse competed in the race in 2018 and 2019. She didn’t travel last year as the event was canceled due to the pandemic. This year she is joined by six other cyclists.

Kaya traveled to Chicago on Tuesday to compete in the Women’s Category 2. She is riding under the C Ray D. Banner team against 18 other women.

Three more cyclists, namely National Time Trial Champion and Road Subchampion Oscar Quiroz of 501 Valvoline Cycling Team, Giovanni Lovell of G-Flow Cycling Team, and Byron Pope of Westrac Cycling flew to Chicago on Wednesday.

The three will be riding in the Men’s Category 2.

The other three have been riding in the criterium races in the United States over the last month.

Henry Li of Project BZE and the Castro brothers Wasani and Jafari under the Clear The Land Cycling Team are registered in the Men’s Category 3. The Clear The Land Team is registered as a US team from Pomona, California.
