By Rubén Morales Iglesias: G-Flow’s Leon Leslie won the 40-mile Dr Elijio Panti Cycling Race on Sunday, June 16, over gruelling terrain in the San Antonio-Mountain Pine Ridge area of the Cayo District. The race was just one of the many activities of ‘Another Beautiful Day in San Antonio 2024’. The whole-day event “seeks to revitalize the Yucatec traditions in their community,” said the Institute for Social and Cultural Research (ISCR-NICH). (See results and photos below.)

The race, put together by Angel Tzib, started at San Antonio, went through Cristo Rey, headed to Santa Elena, onto the George Price Highway to Georgeville into the Mountain Pine Ridge Road all the way to the Blancaneaux Lodge entrance and back to San Antonio..
