OVER 150 cyclists are expected to place their bikes on the line for the opening of the 2016 Trinidad and Tobago Cycling Federation (TTCF) Racing Season with the first leg of the Road Series pedalling off from the Mucurapo Foreshore today from 7am.
Trinidad and Tobago’s sole Olympic cycling hopeful, Njisane Phillip, touched down in Hong Kong early yesterday morning ahead of his penultimate 2016 Summer Games qualifier event – UCI World Cup Series third and final leg – which pedals off in Hong Kong on Saturday.
The celebration has already began in Siparia, Trinidad where cyclist Njisane Phillip lives with his mom, stepdad Phillip Whiteman and other family members.
Adam Alexander of Team Foundation claimed the first road race of the year yesterday, when he took the event from the Mucurapo Foreshore to Couva and back.
The T&T Cycling Federation has made major changes to pedal in line with the world body for cycling, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI). Yesterday, the T&TCF president Robert Farrier announced his federation is on the verge of finalising major adjustments to its constitution which will enhance its development as an organisation.
