Abraham, representing the Team Predator Carbon Repair club, finished ahead of Guyana’s Geron Williams, while another national cyclist, Gevan Samuel, rounded off the top three. The other T&T cyclists to finish in the top ten were Joshua Alexander (5th) and Adam Alexander (7th). On Wednesday, Barbadian Jason Perryman won the Dash Circuit Race, ahead of American Calixto Bello and Williams. Fifty-two-year-old veteran national cyclist Gene “Geronimo” Samuel is in 12th place. The Speed and Steel Circuit Race, was scheduled for last night in San Fernando.
