GCF season pedals off January 28

The Guyana Cycling Federation’s (GCF) 2018 calendar of activities will kick off come January 28 with the staging of its first “points” race.

Jamual John will be looking to start 2018 on the front wheel
when he competes in GCF’s first Points race on January 28

This will see the top cyclists of the country converging for the first time in the New Year as they each seek to prop up their individual chances of drawing first blood in the sense of racking up points.
Jamual John was last year’s most consistent rider after tallying the most points across all GCF races ahead of Paul DeNobrega; the two had a great rivalry in 2017 and will be sure to provide great entertainment this year as well. However, DeNobrega will want to push himself further while John has already signaled his intention of crowning 2018 with more success than 2017, the latter has already started a rigorous training regime and will be hoping to carry over his form from last year.
Not to be ignored is the ever evolving Alanzo Ambrose who proved his self to be a formidable opponent last year as he pushed John and company to the limits even winning the last points race of 2017.
This year should make for intriguing contests as all the cyclists will seek to develop and push each other in their quest to reach the pinnacle of success in 2018.
On January 27 the cyclists will get some much needed track time in as National Cycling Coach Hassan Mohamed is organizing a meet at the inner circuit of the National Park; the feature 35-lap Schoolboys Invitational race will be sure to attract the country’s top cyclists and provide top quality entertainment for cycling fans and enthusiasts.
