Orel Baptiste was first among the Mountain bikers, leaving David Thomas to take the second spot and Tevin Griffith, the third place.

Niesha Alexander was the winner in the female category, with Sharl Rouse second and Samantha Lynch, third.

Shimano Bailey claimed the five laps top prize in the Road Bike category, ahead of Cammie Adams and Shane Cole, in second and third places respectively.

Oma Baptiste won the children’s race; Andray Nicholls was second and third was Deandra Da Breo.

First in the 40 and over male category was Peter Durrant. Second was Orel Baptiste and third was Emmerson Holder.

Zefal Bailey won the Junior category and Kadmiel Peters was second.
