Dominique Mayho prevailed over Conor White and Tyler Smith today (Dec 18), to take top honours in the 9th edition of the Bermuda Bicycle Association’s (BBA) Presidents Cup race.

A spokesman said: “The event started under grey skies that eventually turned to light rain and cool temperatures for the 28 starters.”

Mayho’s victory marked “his sixth win in the event established to recognize the leaders of the cycling federation”.

“The trio of Mayho, White and Smith lead from early in the event, breaking away on Crawl Hill and pushing through the 56-mile event to the finish on Harbour Road. Smith dropped off the lead group several times through the miles but always reeled the others back so that the finale was a sprint finish with Mayho prevailing,” the spokesman added.

“Caitlin Conyers was the first female to cross the line, finishing 7th overall.  Junior Cameron Morris was poised to finish well up in the standings before an incident with a car with less than 200 meters to the finish.  Thankfully he was not seriously injured and was about to remount and finish as the winner of the junior male category.  Recent Junior Caribbean champion Annabelle Miller finished in 19th to win the junior female group.
