By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Rolling Shattaz- BZ-Boyz’s Delton Rojas won the 70-mile 22nd Annual BEL Junior Cross Country Cycling Classic by a hairline over G-Flow’s Jaylen Briceño at the Marion Jones Sporting Complex in Belize City.
Briceño may have attacked too early past Mirab coming into the City as Rojas countered and opened a gap which Briceño managed to close on Princess Margaret Drive but it may have cost him the race. At the finish, Rojas appeared to win by a foot-length.
