Guyana lacking representation at UCI Tour of Tobago

first_img… after creditable performances last yearTHE United Cycling International (UCI) Tour of Tobago is scheduled for October 2, 2016. In the same event last year, two of Guyana’s cyclists Romelo Crawford and Raynauth Jeffrey turned in impressive performances.For Crawford it was the Division two 20-lap Plymouth Criterium race in Tobago Cycling Classic Four race series. The young Berbician won the race in an exciting sprint ahead of Junior Caribbean champion Tyler Cole and Nicholas Paul. There were 42 starters in the event. Jeffrey, on the other hand, placed fourth in the event but was disqualified for not following an unmarked section of the course towards the finish of the race.This year, it appears as if Guyana will be unrepresented according to Guyana Cycling Federation Race Secretary Hassan Mohamed. When questioned by the Guyana Chronicle, Mohamed stated he was unable to comment on Guyana taking part.“I’m unable to comment at this time, it does not look like we will be sending cyclists due to financial constraints,” stated Mohamed.He added that most cyclists secured their own sponsors through the federation but at this point there were no requests for sponsor licences.The UCI Tour of Tobago starts in nine days and if Guyanese cyclists are looking to take part they will have a short period of time to find sponsorship.last_img
