White claims second place in Anguilla
Bermuda’s cyclists once again left their mark on Caribbean cycling with strong performances at the John T Memorial Race in Anguilla at the weekend.
Conor White produced a strong performance to place second behind repeat winner Hasani Hennis, of Anguilla.
White and Hennis gradually whittled down a lead group of six riders, leaving just the two of them to battle it out on the third and final lap.
Although Hennis got the better of White midway through the lap, White received plenty of applause from the thousand or more spectators lining the finish area.
Nicholas Narraway, racing in the junior category, scored a convincing victory as he came in to the finish.
Narraway was aggressive throughout the entire race and on the first lap was part of a three-man break that was leading all categories.
Also in the junior field was Keiran Malott in his first international event. His fifth-place finish showed the progress he has made this year and bodes well for future competitions.
In the cadet category for riders 15 and 16 years of age, Nazarai Fox and Liam Flannery finished in fourth and fifth, respectively, having contested the sprint finish for second and after, with the race winner Sanon Wilson half a minute ahead.
Helping to lead the team was Kaden Hopkins, who helped White on the first lap of the 130-kilometres competition but eventually he fell off the pace and was abandoned after the second lap.
