ArubaOn Thursday 25th February, 2016 cyclists Hasani Hennis and Joseph Hercules of Double Trouble Cycling Team journeyed to Aruba to represent Anguilla in the VCT Race. Hasani was the clear winner as he was able to “drop the pack” for the final three laps, while Joseph sprinted to the finish and secured himself the second position. The cyclists who are also brothers extend thanks to their sponsor Bryan Hennis (Hasani’s father) and their mother Hyacinth Hennis, Edsel Romney of Cyclone Cycling Club St. Maarten, their coach Timothy Richardson and members of the Double Trouble Cycling Team and all their supporters in Anguilla.

The Anguilla Cycling Association congratulates both Hasani and Joseph for an excellent performance in Aruba.
