BELIZE CITY, Mon. July 3, 2017–The 4th Annual C-Ray Cycling Club’s Youth Summer Series kicked off yesterday, Sunday, July 2, on Marine Parade Boulevard. Despite the rainy weather conditions, some 48 youths (34 male and 14 female) from as far as Georgeville, Cayo, showed up to race in 10 different categories.
Included here are the Week 1 results with some pictures. There is a special picture with all the females who raced yesterday. A little progress each day adds up to big results. I definitely can’t change the past, so I’m focusing on making a great future for female cycling in my country. These are the faces that will take over from me.
