Enrique De Comarmond, Alexi Costa and her father Guy Costa led a clean sweep for Team Heatwave Cycle Club in the Junior Male, Elite Women and Elite Open categories when the third Road Race League took place from the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva to Gulf City in La Romaine.

Following a rolling start in the 136 kilometre grind, only Lorenzo Orosco prevented an all-Heatwave advantage early on as Barbadian Jamol Eastmond, Edwin Sutherland and Costa (Guy) sped out front in the main peleton. The younger Costa and De Comarmond also took the lead soon after the start in their respective divisions.

But in the Elite Open the Barbadian, Sutherland and Orosco made a wrong turn at Oropouche and fell behind by a minute and 30 seconds to De Comarmond whose dominance among the juniors for the year left him as the favourite to win the race.

However, the trio was joined by Costa (Guy) to storm back from behind to take silverware.

Costa, the veteran, secured the win in a time of three hours and 22 minutes, while De Comarmond held on for second overall, but was the first junior rider. Sutherland claimed third while Eastmond settled for fourth.

Among the juniors, De Comarmond was followed in second by Adam Francis of The Braves and Maurice Burnette of Phoenix in third.

Costa’s daughters Alexi and Jessica were unstoppable among the women, taking first and second for the Heatwave. Christine Farah, who represented T&T at the Elite Senior Pan American Cycling Championships last year, had to be taken to hospital for a broken collar bone she sustained when she went down in a crash.

Meanwhile, in the Youth Development Meet that was also held at the weekend there were impressive performances for Jeduthun Henry, Maurice Lopez, Judah Neverson and Nefertiti Joseph, all of Rigtech Sonics.
