THE VALLEY, Anguilla – June 1, 2017 – The Anguilla Cycling Association, through the assistance of Caribbean Cycling President, Trevor Sailor Bailey; and COPACI President, Mr. Jose Palaez, has sent two Junior Cyclists to Cuba for training.

The cyclists, Mr. Xavi Brookes and Mr. Jamari Bryan, left Anguilla on Sunday, June 4, 2017 for Cuba where they will participate in a three – week training programme. During their time in Cuba, they will have training in various aspects of the sport as well as the opportunity to participate in cycling competitions. Xavi and Jamari will be under the mentorship of Cuban trainer and Coach Mr. Ernesto Arias.

This training will benefit both cyclists tremendously as they prepare for our annual John T. Memorial Cycling Race which takes place on July 9 and as they travel to the Bahamas the week following John T. Race for the Junior Commonwealth Games.
Xavi and Jamari are expected to soar to higher heights after this training as they are both talented and dedicated cyclists who must be commended for their performance in the sport. I expect that they will grasp as much knowledge as possible and apply what they learn in competitions going forward and also share much of what they learn with our other cyclists, says Sharon Lowe, President of The Anguilla Cycling Association.

The Anguilla Cycling Association extends much gratitude to the Government of Anguilla, Mr. Jose Palaez, President of COPACI; Mr. Trevor Sailor Bailey, President of the Caribbean Cycling Federation; and Mr. Rollins and Ms. Katrina Richardson at The Department of Sports for the role they played in making this possible.
The Association also extends best wishes to Xavi and Jamari.
