First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Caitlin Conyers and Kaden Hopkins claimed gold medals in their time-trial races at the Caribbean Cycling Championships in Havana, Cuba, yesterday

Conyers, who won bronze in the time-trial last year, took the honours in the elite women's race while Hopkins secured gold in the men's under-23 and elite competition.

It is believed Hopkins is the first rider to have held Caribbean titles in the junior and elite division, having won the junior race when it was held in Bermuda in 2018.

Hopkins finished today's time-trial in 45min 16.629sec, with Abner González, of Puerto Rico, coming second in 45:57.311, and Hasani Hennis, of Anguila, finishing third in 47:03.156. All three riders were also competing in the under-23 category.

Also representing Bermuda in the time-trial was Conor White.

In the men's road race today, White finished 24th, Hopkins came 26th and Mayho placed 43rd. Gabriella Arnold joined Conyers in the women's elite race.
