PHILIPSBURG—Seven Romny won the Junior Division and Steve Catalan took top honours in the seniors at the St. Maarten St. Martin Cycling Club evening race Saturday.
The race had been schooled to be a 100 lap relay consisting of five rider teams.
"Several of the teams pulled out at the last minute." said Jean Paul Rousseau from the Cycling Club.
"We did not want to disappoint the riders that did show so we ran two races." The young riders did five laps of the one kilometre course and the seniors completed 30 laps.
The lap starts on Pond Island by the University, goes to the Salt Pickers Roundabout back to the landfill entrance and finishes back at the University.
Second in the juniors was Noel Kianny. Victor Cedric was second in the older group.
The race was made possible by NAPA, NAGICO Tri-Sports and Veronica Webster.
The race was the Clubs last scheduled event of the season.
