Valentine Classic 2016 Results

on

On Sunday, February 14, 2016, the Cycling Federation of Belize (CFB) held its annual Valentine Cycling Classic for Elite Women and Junior Men.

The race for the Junior Men was 63 miles starting from Central Farm in the Cayo District to finish in front of Leslie’s Imports in Belize City. Ernest Bradley (SMART Junior Cycling Team) took the victory by out sprinting Shaun Codd and Anthony Lewis Jr, both of Westrac Alliance. Codd and Lewis completed the podium at second and third, respectively. With the victory, Bradley notches his second victory in as many races so far in 2016. Bradley and teammate Kaydine Pinelo continue to show their strength in the junior ranks.

Other Teams

Cabral/Marin Cycling Team also had another strong performance with four riders in the top 10. Gian Lino continues to impress as he finished 5th overall and 2nd in the Youth Sub-Category.

Westrac Alliance rider Anthony Lewis Jr made the podium after a disappointing DNF in the New Year’s Day event.

BIG SHEP Cycling Team was able to crack the top ten with Ernest Banner in the eight spot and other riders finishing the race. This was the second event for the newly formed squad.

WKC Strikers had the most underwhelming performance on the day with four DNFs including standout rider Darien Anderson. Their promising young riders Jeshaun Fraser and Sherwin Requena did finish 10th and 11th, respectively. Additionally, Fraser made the podium finishing third in the Youth Sub-category.

Elite Women

The Women’s race was from Roaring Creek Village, just outside Belmopan City to Leslie’s Imports in Belize City covering 47 miles. Alicia Thompson (Belize Bank/Swoosh) repeated her winning ways after winning the opening race of the season on New Year’s Day. The 2015 version of this event was a 3 stage mini tour, which was also won by Thompson. Only three women lined up for the event inclusive of Thompson. Her competitors were sisters Gina and Gabrielle Lovell both of DigiCell 4G. The only other women riders to line up this year were of C-Ray Women Cycling Team; Kaya Cattouse, Patricia Chavarria and Paulita Chavarria. That team chose to boycott the event as a consequence of recent fallout with the CFB.

With the CFB scheduling tours for the Elite Women and Junior Men later in the year, this event was reverted back to a one day race for the those categories.
