JUST days after finishing in second place at the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) Cycling Championship held in Dominica and one week earlier crowned National Road Champion, Andrew Norbert will now compete at an international cycling event in Martinique.
Norbert, who left the island on Wednesday, will compete in the 36th edition of the Tour Cycliste International de Martinique, which is scheduled to run from July 8-16.
Over 104 riders have registered for the event and the race will be contested over nine stages totaling 1,073.4 km, an average of 119 km per stage.
Nobert will be part of a mixed Caribbean team comprising the 2017 OECS Champion Jymes Bridges of Antigua and Barbuda, Trevor Zefal Bailey (Saint Vincent and the Grenadines), Tyron Thomas (Grenada) and Wilfred Chittick (Dutch Saint Martin). While in Martinique, the team will be coached by Alex Noreskai.
