Devil takes the hindmost – The “Devil takes the hindmost” race was introduced to the youths this week. This is a race of smarts and speed; every lap is a sprint to the line, and the cyclist that crosses the line last is out of the race. When there are 3 riders remaining, the whistle is blown to signal the final lap. The cyclist who crosses the line first then wins the race. 12 riders started the race, therefore there were 10 laps. 1st was Patrick Williams; 2nd Darien Anderson; and 3rd Gerson Lovell.
Cyclists were awarded points based on their finish position in their respective categories: 1st place – 12 pts; 2nd place – 10 pts; 3rd place – 8 pts; 4th place – 6 pts; 5th place – 4 pts; 6th – last place – 1 pt.
