Sports Monday: Smart’s New Year Cycling Race

Good evening, I’m James Adderley and this is Sports Monday.


Folks we start off with the 6th annual Smart New Year’s Day Race as presented by the Weekend Warriors Cycling Club. It’s a race that left the Orange Walk Town Council for the finish at the M&M Engineering Office around mile 2 on the Phillip Goldson Highway to cover a distance of 55 miles. As we set chase on the race we find the fallen figure of the Mexican rider from Chetumal, Omar Guera, at mile 37 still trying to recover from a fall that would take him out of the race, having suffered a fractured collar. It’s Isaiah Willacy of FT Williams with a breakaway pack of some 14 riders to claim the premie at Crooked Tree. At Mile 24, Gilroy Robinson steps out to launch a solo flight. He would gain a 46-second lead. And here’s a look at the pelathon as they mount a chase.

The pelathon would prevail and this is where they reeled in Robinson around mile 13. It’s getting close to money time so George Abraham of BelCal breaks out of the pack. Here’s Abraham on the Haulover Bridge descent and for certain he knows there’s a hungry pack on his trail. However, George Abraham rides like a man possessed and does not back off until he crosses the finish line in an unchallenged fashion to grab the big win in a time of 2 hours 15 minutes 56 seconds. Dwight Tillett of BelCal breaks out of the pack and holds on for 2nd place in 2 hours 16 minutes 9 seconds. Robert Mariano of Digicell 4G sprints in for 3rd place while David Yearwood and Fitzgerald Palas Joseph both of Lampaz finish 4th and 5th respectively. At the B Class level, Clarence Tesecum of FT Williams takes top honors; Ryan Willoughby of Smart grabs 2nd place while Kevin Hope of FT Williams rounds out the top 3.

Now here’s the finish for the C Class that ran for 49 miles. Edward of Stationery House/Medina’s Jewelry zips out of the crowd for 1st place in 2:26:59; Alejandro Morales of Caribbean Tires is forced into 2nd place. Ivan Tesecum of Digicell 4G hangs on for 3rd place. Flores of Sugar City United pulls up 4th while Hewald Humes of Digicell 4G rounds out the top 5.

Turning to the football scene, we caught up with Saturday’s CYDP action as King’s Park and Hattieville United inside the MCC Grounds. Folks we’re 6 minutes into the ballgame when Latrell Middleton beats Glenford King in the Hattieville goal to give King’s Park the 1-zip lead. 10 minutes later, this pass from midfield finds Latrell Middleton who strikes for his 2nd goal. Hattieville looks to get on the scoreboard when Marcus Lewis finds Brandon Rogers whose header bounces over the crossbar. Latrell looks for his 3rd when he fires this left but goalkeeper King makes the stop. At the other end, Carlton Rogers attempt is straight to the Hattieville keeper and at the half; it’s a 2-zip King’s Park lead. Albert Arnold makes the ballgame interesting when he drops this ball from outside the 18 perfectly into the net to get Hattieville on to the scoreboard.

When Latrell Middleton finds Shemar Thompson with this center, the head is good as King’s Park goes up 3 to 1. Mark of King’s Park then makes it a 4-1 with this right foot push into the far corner. Latrell Liddleton gets his 3rd goal on this left foot offering from point blank range for the 5-1 score. King’s Park strikers goes on to post the 6-1 victory when Glenford King fails to handle this shot; the rebound reaches Tyrone Armstrong and he delivers.

In other action around the league: Lake I Rising and Ebony Lake settled for a 1-1 tie; Exodus United avoided New Revolution with the default and Ebony Lake FC handled Mahogany heights in a 4-1 finish.


Jah over all, I’m James Adderley.

    No mention of the females in the Krem cyling Classic. What a shame.
