Kluivert Mitchel is riding on a high and once again outdid his competitors to emerge victorious in the 51 km Road Race, held on Sunday April, 30, in which 12 riders participated.
He continued to display his impressive form, following up on the heels of his Marathon win at the recent Eastertide weekend race.
On the first lap Mitchel went on an early break, however the chase group consisting of Fidel Esnard, Kirby Anthony, John Mangal, Mathew Louis, Eltus Joseph and Denver Alphonse worked and was able to close the gap which hovered around 30 secs by the second lap.
At the beginning of the 3rd lap Denver Alphonse was off the back of the group after slowing down to check his bike. He was unable to make contact with the lead group again. Mathew Louis and Eltus Joseph crashed out of the lead group during the second half of the 3rd lap leaving the lead group with Kirby Anthony, Fidel Esnard, Mitchel and John Mangal.
Heading into the 4th lap, near the Vigie roundabout, Mangal was off the back suffering a front puncture, which gave the other riders a lead.
Mitchel led the charge over Felix and Esnard, while driving the pace on the back stretch.
Heading to the finish line, Felix started the sprint with Mitchel responding by coming around in the last 100 metres to take the win.
