VICF Releases East End Individual Time Race Results

Top 3 Expert finishers (L to R) Kasey Canton 2nd, Danielky Cédeño 1st, Wayne Nichols 3rd

Sunday morning was filled with beautiful weather and a few surprises as the Virgin Islands Cycling Federation (VICF) held its first competitive event of the 2020 season.  Twenty-eight riders competed in the 13-mile East End Individual Time, which started and finished in front of Castaways in Estate Solitude.

After the starting line-up was set, each cyclist was sent off from the starting line at one-minute intervals, with the fastest cyclists going last.  A newcomer to St. Croix, 16-year-old Danielky Cédeño brought his surprising speed from the Dominican Republic and secured first place in a time of 35:41.  The champion borrowed a bike in order to compete because his own bikes have not yet arrived on St. Croix.  Since this was Cédeño’s first race in the Virgin Islands, he raced in the Expert category.

Top three Elite finishers: Mikey Dizon-Bumann 2nd, Stephen Swanton 1st, David Parris 3rd

Stephen Swanton was the first Elite rider and second overall in 36:05; 16-year-old Mikey Dizon-Bumann was third overall in a time of 36:43. Other first place category finishers were Alvin Thomas (Sport), Catherine Seguin (Women) and Mason Lambert (Junior).

The next race on the VICF calendar is Donald’s Challenge at 7 a.m., Sunday, Feb. 16.  The course starts at Ha’ penny, then heads west to Cane Garden, turns around then heads east to Castle Nugget, then back to Ha’ penny.  Each lap is about 7 miles.  Women/Sport: 14 miles, Expert: 28 miles, Elite: 42 miles.
