Teenager Gillan Moses sprinted to victory over national champion Fidel Esnard in the Saint Lucia National Cycling Association’s 75km road race.
The 19-year-old Moses, riding as a first year senior, covered the three-lap race in 2:09:08.98, with Esnard less than a second and a half back.
Each 25km lap went from the Sol Gas Station in Bexon to Ravine Poission, back to the Millennium Heights Medical Complex Roundabout and back to Sol Bexon.
Moses and Ednard went on a break within the first 5km of the race, leading by two minutes at the 25km mark. Antonious ‘Chad’ Jn Baptiste and junior cyclist Dave Charlery tried to push up, but they were quickly reeled in.
Antonious went again, pursued by Elvis Joseph and Dave Charlery. Eventually, Winston Williams and Eustace Dookie took off from the main bunch and caught up with the trio of Charlery, Jn Baptiste and Joseph, still adrift of the leaders.
Williams left the chasing quintet, but could only get within three minutes of the top two. Esnard finished in 2:09:10.29, with Williams third at 2:12:15.49, Joseph 2:12:40.61 and Dookie 2:13:55.90.
In the Junior and Juveniles, Dave Charlery and Kluivert Mitchel emerged victorious in 2:16:59.31 and 2:17:02.99.
In the 50km women’s race, Toni-Ann James finished in 2:04:12, whilst Sherkel Aubert won the boys Under-15 in 1:54:15 over Ken Eugene.
