Mayho, Conyers & Oliveira Win Cycling Races

June 24, 2018

Dominique Mayho and Caitlin Conyers won the male and female open titles, while Matthew Oliveira took the junior male title in this morning’s Bermuda Bicycle Association’s road race.

The BBA said, “Following an attack by Mayho’s teammate Jamie Cousins of VT Construction – Madison and Adam Kirk of Winners Edge, Mayho, Conor White and Gary Raynor, [both Winners Edge] bridged up to the two leaders along with Kwame Curling [VT].

“The ensuing laps saw numerous attacks which, along with the heat, took its toll on the group. Heading into the final lap it was Mayho who remained strong enough to control the group and he powered home on the last circuit. Curling and White charged up the hill to Prospect together with Curling surging to the lead on the final steep section, securing second place.

“Pre-race favorites Cailin Conyers [Bicycle Works] and Nicole Mitchell [Winners Edge] sprinted to finish the women’s race with Conyers edging out Mitchell. Rose-Anna Hoey came in solo to round out the podium.

“In the junior men’s race Matt Oliveira [Hot Tubes] and Kaden Hopkins [Winners Edge] distanced themselves from the rest of the field on the first of three laps and then duked it out for the national title with Oliveira taking a 14 second win.

“The battle for third was between Ziani Burgesson [VT] , Nicholas Narraway and Alexander Miller [both Winners Edge]. The teammates Miller and Narraway alternated their attacks on Burgesson and on the last lat Narraway escaped solo to round to take third. The lone junior female contestant Alyssa Rowse was unable to finish, leaving the title vacated for 2018. The local racing scene now will take a month off before resuming in late July.”
