Nissan Arana Bounces Back in Mt. Hope Classic


Earlier today Nissan Arana (Westrac Alliance) bounced back from a disheartening finish to the Valentine Tour to win the the first 100+ mile classic this year. The race started in front of Leslie’s Imports in Belize City, headed to Mt. Hope on the Western Highway and returned to finish at the start line for a total of 116 miles. Westrac Alliance, and Arana, continue to assert themselves in the peloton and make their presence known. Arana finished in solo fashion in 4:57:21, 13 seconds ahead of Brandon Cattouse (C-Ray Road Addikz) and 21 seconds back was Ron Vasquez of Western Spirit to take the final podium spot.

Below are the preliminary results from today’s race.
