Clinical DeNobrega clinches 8th | Digicel Cancer Awareness Cycling Meet

first_imgA CLINICAL race by Team Evolution’s Paul DeNobrega saw him clinching the 8th edition of Digicel’s Cancer Awareness Cycling Meet ahead of a strong field, inclusive of in-form Jamaul John and Guyana’s national road race champion, Curtis Dey.It was a thrilling and well calculated ride by DeNobrega who initially was in the chasing pack while John, Michael Anthony, Briton ‘Screechie’ John and Hamzah Eastman made up the peloton for the most part of the race.However, with just about 8 laps left of the 35-lap main event, DeNobrega attacked and eventually broke away from the peloton; never to look back. He won the race in one hour, 41 minutes and 23 seconds to be crowned champion.Earlier, last year’s winner, Geron Williams dropped out of the race, after just a couple of laps with complications, which meant the title was wide open for the taking.After DeNobrega’s comprehensive and inevitable victory, the competition was heated for second and third places respectively; Briton John prevailed to cop second spot while Jamaul John had to settle for third ahead of Akeal Campbell (fourth), Hamzah Eastman (fifth) and Michael Anthony (sixth).The overall winners pose for a photo opportunity as a Digicel representative presents the cheque to an official from the Guyana Cancer Institute. (Adrian Narine photo)Three prime prizes– two worth $5000 each and a third worth $20,000– were up for grabs; Anthony and Stephano Husbands pocketed one apiece while DeNobrega, in his late surge, grabbed the $20,000 prime.Earlier in the day, Quincy Punch held off Ozia McAulay for the Mountain Bike title while Mario King claimed third place.In the event for Novices, Paul Thomas copped first prize while Kurt Bunbury was second and Tyrone Conway third.Paul Cho Wee Nam copped the U-45 title ahead of Warren ‘40’ McKay (second) and Junior Niles (third); Cho Wee Nam was also the victor in the Over-45 category, beating out Ian Jackson and Amait Sankar, who placed second and third, respectively.Briton John was the top Junior rider, ahead of Emmanuel Gayral and Donovan Fraser while the BMX Boys and Girls 9-12 was captured by Jaheme Henry; Shaquel Dow finished second and Nchum Rigby third.The event, organised by Team Evolution Cycling Club, saw a great turn out of competitors and spectators; it was deemed a success by Andrew Arjoon of the club.A sum of $500,000 was presented to the Cancer Institute of Guyana at the presentation ceremony.last_img read more

Kalas keen to make fresh start at Boro

first_imgChelsea defender Tomas Kalas has told the Northern Echo he hopes his loan spell at Middlesbrough will act as a fresh start for his career.Kalas admitted he regretted rejecting Boro in the summer to join Bundesliga side Cologne, where he failed to make an appearance in a loan spell that was cut short after six months.The 21-year-old Czech agreed a switch to the Riverside Stadium last week and made his debut in a goalless draw with Reading on Saturday, playing 90 minutes at right-back.Kalas said: “In the last year and a half, I can count the number of games I have played on one hand. There weren’t many, so I hope this is the start of a better future.“It didn’t go the way I would have wanted at Cologne. I had zero games and zero minutes. I’m just pleased it’s over to be honest.“Everyone can imagine what it was like for a player who wasn’t playing and who wants to play. I went there on loan to play, but it didn’t work out well.“I hope the fact I played the first game here is a sign of things to come. It’s a good start and hopefully I can improve myself.”Kalas made four appearances for Chelsea last season, including playing 90 minutes against Liverpool in April, and previously had a loan spell at Dutch club Vitesse.He is one of three Chelsea players on Middlesbrough’s books, alongside striker Patrick Bamford and defender Kenneth Omeruo, and says the familiar faces will help him adjust to the Championship.“When I came, I already knew some people, so that made it easier to settle in,” said Kalas.“You have people who you can ask about training, or the game day, or even just about the food. It’s been helpful that Patrick and Kenneth are here.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
