Mayo the rider to watch as road season begins

Bermuda Bicycle Association (BBA) begin their road race season tomorrow with the first event in the IBC Criterium Series in St. David’s with new categories put into place.

The threequarter mile loop track will see recently crowned mountain biking champion Dominique Mayho battle for early season bragging rights.

“The turnout is expected to be massive, even when compared to the large numbers of 2011,” said BBA president Peter Dunne.

“Teams such as Crime Stoppers and Tokio have added to their numbers over the winter while Madison, Fast Forward Bicycle Works and Winners Edge have all been training intensely for the start of the season.

“Eighteen year old Mayho’s dominance of the mountain biking season suggests he is one of the top contenders with his strong Madison team in support, but the depth of ability in Fast Forward Bicycle Works and Winners Edge means that the 40-minute race will be hard fought the entire way.”

Racing begins at 8.30am with the Adult ‘A’ group which includes Bermuda’s top riders, while Junior ‘B’ and ‘C’ categories will take over the course at 9.15am.

The newly formed Adult Women category will be the last to start at 10.55am.

“With the field in the new category comprised of complete novices, upcoming junior females and more experienced athletes, the interest in the sport has come from all sectors and promises to be a lively contest,” added Dunne
