By Rubén Morales Iglesias: 80 cyclists are on their way to San Ignacio, Cayo, as the 92nd Holy Saturday Cross Country Cycling Classic is now underway.

501 Valvoline’s Oscar Quiroz and G-Flow’s Giovanni Lovell and 71 other Belizeans carry the hopes of the nation as they try to win the garland (plus a ton load of other prizes including the $5,000 for the winner) while fending off the Guatemalan trio led by 2019 winner Julio Padilla Miranda plus four other foreigners which include an American, a Mexican, a Barbadian, and an Anguillan.

The Holy Saturday Cross Country Cycling Classic is the most important single sporting event dating back to 1928 when Elston Kerr won the initial ride.

The race led off from the Digi Park in Belize City but had a running start by Leslie’s Imports just past Lord Ridge Cemetery. The riders are now on their way to San Ignacio-Santa Elena from where they will turn back to the Digi Park for approximately 142 miles.

Nine teams are competing: 501 Valvoline, G-Flow, Westrac Alliance, Road Rage, C-Town, FAL’s, M&M Engineering, PMA, and Guatemalan team Ópticas Deluxe. 16 riders, 12 Belizeans and 4 foreigners, are riding independently. American John DeLong is riding in representation of his US team Skyline, but like the riders from Mexico, Anguilla, and Barbados who are representing their countries, he’s on his own.
