The 50 miles event will be held on February 23rd Mashramani day and is dubbed the Courts Mashramani cycle road race.
It is open to all cyclists in Guyana and all the top riders in the country are expected to travel to the Ancient County to be part of the action.
The race is set to pedal off at 09:00 hrs from in front of the Courts Furniture Store in New Amsterdam at Main and St Ann Streets, proceed to Nand Persaud Business complex up the Corentyne before returning to finish at the place of origin. Regional Chairman Region 6 David Armogan and officials from Courts are expected to send the cyclists on their way.
There will be prizes for the first eight finishers, the first four club cyclists, the top two juveniles, the first two females, first three 12-14 riders. The first three 12-14 BMX and the first three 6-9 BMX riders to cross the finishing line will also be rewarded. There will also be 10 sprint point prizes up for grabs.
Juveniles and 12-14 cyclists will pedal from Rose Hall Town. The females will ride from the Chris Jagdeo at No1 to the finishing line. The BMX riders will race from the New Amsterdam Technical Institute (NATI).
A grueling event is anticipated since most of the cyclists are in top form.
The presentation ceremony will be held immediately after the completion of the event.
