The Trinidad Guardian / Barbadian Jamol Eastmond pedalled to the gold medal in last week’s feature 25-Lap event at the San Fernando Cycling Extravaganza at Skinner Park.
The Bajan rider who represents Heatwave in T&T, got the better of Akil Campbell (PSL) for the win, while Adam Alexander of Team Raiders and Jabari Whiteman (Unattached) secured the third and fourth positions respectively.
The event was one of many held over the last weekend, from Friday to Sunday. Also last week Jarel Mohammed (Southclaine) stole the win over Jevante Lawrence in the 4-lap Tinymites race with Mosi Williamson and Aaron Matas taking third and fourth respectfully.
In the Juvenile 2-laps Tariq Woods (Team Woods), D’ Angelo Harris (Rigtech Sonics) and Joshua Rawlins (Southclaine) claim the top three positions among the Men, while Jessica Costa capitalized on the absence of Tineil Campbell in the Women’s 8-lap event, by taking the gold.
The Heatwave rider defeated her sister Alexi Costa into second position while Christian Farah of Breakaway was third.
In the Luces Brothers Meet on Saturday Eastmond again prevailed in the 500 metres sprint, getting the better of Campbell (Akil) for a second time in two days for the win. Harris was third and veteran rider Haseem Mc Lean was fourth.
Mohammed (Jarel) was also a winner on the day’s programme when he defeated Lawrence in the 3-lap tinymites sprint to declare his superiority in his category. For a second time the Southclaine cyclist left Lawrence in his dust and could have looked on as Matas stormed home for third.
However, Lawrence got his revenge at the Southern Games a day later (Sunday) at Guaracara Park, Pointe-a-Pierre, clinching the win ahead of Matas in the tinymites. There was also victory for Melina Lopez in the Girls under-7, Renee Fortune in the girls Under-9, Michael Ackee in the Boys juniors and Jacquan Elbourne among the youth developers.
