Final two stages of Forbes Burnham Memorial cycle road race today

first_imgTHE last two stages of the Annual Forbes Burnham Three-Stage Cycle Road Race is slated for today,with the first expected to commence at 07:30hrs from the `Five Corners’ in Linden and concluding on Homestretch Avenue in Georgetown.The race leader is Trojan cyclist Andrew Hicks of Berbice,who won last Sunday’s first stage which was held in Berbice. Hicks returned a winning time of one hour three minutes and 34 seconds for the 36-mile stage and will go into today’s second stage with a three-second lead ahead of Team Coco’s Stephano Husbands who finished second in the Berbice leg.Husbands’ club mates Hamzah Eastman and Jamal John placed third and fourth respectively last Sunday, while national road race champion Geron Williams placed fifth.The event which is being organized by the Flying Stars Cycle Club is expected to bring out the best of the local wheelsmen and today’s second stage can well see the `boys’ being separated from the `men’ as the saying goes, since it entails journeying up hill on the Linden/Soesdyke Highway.The final stage will wheel off from Homestretch Avenue at 14:00hrs(today) and proceed to Belfield on the East Coast Demerara,before returning to the place of origin for the finish.last_img
