Junior cyclists Tahje Browne and Jomarie King will represent Antigua and Barbuda at the 2023 Junior Caribbean Cycling Championships scheduled for September 15-17 in Santo Domingo.

The duo will compete in the 15-16 age category as they vie for top honours in the event being hosted by the Cycling Federation of the Dominican Republic.

President of the Antigua and Barbuda Cycling Federation (ABCF) St Clair Williams, who will also travel with the riders, said the team was selected based on age and ability.

“It’s the category … we don’t have [many] cyclists in that category, spanning the years 15 and 16. So those are two of the cyclists that we see [with] a lot of talent and we’re hoping that they will be able to represent us well overseas. It was a unanimous decision by the board and we’re hoping that they will do Antigua and Barbuda proud,” he said. 

Williams added that much is expected of the cyclists when they feature in the highly competitive event.

“In terms of Mr Browne, we’re hoping he will represent us in terms of getting a podium position. Mr Jomarie King has been riding well recently and training well also, and so we’re hoping he puts down a very good performance. That’s what we are looking for at the end of the day and more so for Jomarie King because we’re making sure he could get that level of exposure and experience out there on that circuit,” he said.

The team is expected to leave for Santo Domingo on September 12 and return on September 19.
