Mayho chalks up another victory

Dominique Mayho, of Madison Digicel, continued his dominance of the local cycling scene with a convincing victory in a hot and humid Bicycle Works Road Race yesterday.

Mayho, the expected winner in category A, finished the 11-mile loop on South Shore and Middle Road in a time of 2hr 24min 13sec.

Mark Hatherley, of Winners Edge, showed he is still a serious contender with a second-place finish in 2:24:17, while Dave McComas, of Tokio, completed the top three in 2:25:02.

In the B category, Gary Raynor, of Winners Edge, used his quick turn of speed to outsprint Jonah Jones, of Tokio, to claim victory in 1:54:59.066 Jones finished in 1:54:59.727.

Halfway through the race Jones pushed off the front and was quickly joined by Raynor and Revelin Minihane.

The three gradually built up a lead of over one minute but on the last lap Minihane ran out of gas because of the relentless pace set by Jones.

This left the remnants of the peloton to contest the sprint for third place which was taken by Adam Kirk, of Winners Edge.

The C group race was won in a sprint by Garth Fleming, of Team Tokio, ahead of Paulo Medeiros, of Winners Edge, and teenager Ziani Burgess, of Team Tokio.

Rose-Anna Hoey now seems to have switched from a runner to a cyclist and took the women's category race from her Madison-Digicel team-mate April Galder-Joyce with Penelope Butterfield in third.

In the younger categories Caleb Ingham won the junior A race ahead of Tommy Marshall and then Liam Flannery.

The junior B winner was Manning Smith with Ethan Butterfield in second and Gordon Smith in third.

Man to beat: another win for Mayho
