Bermuda secured “multiple podium appearances” this weekend in the Junior Caribbean Cycling Championships in Guyana.
The first race on Sunday in Bartica was the Juvenile category which was contested over 38 miles.
According to Peter Dunne, Bermuda Bicycling Association President: “Bermuda’s Alexander Miller fought to get in the breakaway with two other riders, while teammates Nazarair Fox and Liam Flannery controlled the pace in the peloton.
“Miller was successful and the lead trio came to the final corner together to sprint. Miller was second to the Puerto Rico rider with the USVI competitor in third. In the ensuing bunch sprint Fox and Flannery finished side by side for seventh and eighth.
“In the Junior race, Nic Narraway finished solo third after a somewhat frustrating race. When the eventual winner broke away on the third lap of 10, Narraway attempted to go with the rider but found the pace beyond his capability.
“Behind him several rides joined in the chase and he was eventually left with two from Puerto Rico. These two did not contribute further to the chase and with two laps remaining Narraway accelerated away and finished in the bronze medal position.
“Returning to Bermuda with five of the twelve medals available this weekend has demonstrated the local cycling program is one of the best in the region,” said Mr Dunne.
The team is due back in Bermuda this evening (Monday, August 12), “brimming with confidence and looking forward to the next phase of their sporting development.”.
