Tesheed Gordon will be defending his Junior national title against a strong fleet of young riders including Joel Phillip, Nigel Fabian, Colin James. and Odell Joseph.

The Cycling Association is appealing to motorists for their co-operation on the shared use of the roads in this area. Although we are very pleased with the co-operation so far, this event requires riding-rhythm and keen concentration of the cyclists with less room for error.
