Eight sprint point prizes will be up for grabs. The females are expected to pedal from No.1 village on the Corentyne a distance of 10 miles.
The event is organised by the Flying Ace Cycle Club and is being held in honour of the late engineer who passed away three years ago at the age of 96.

According to the race coordinator, cycling coach Randolph Roberts, this year’s event is expected to be bigger.
