Abraham to lead T&T in six days of cycling
The glitz and glamour of international cycling will come to Tobago for six days of thrills and frills as some of the world’s top cyclists challenge the best of the Caribbean, starting tomorrow.
The tempo will rise to fever pitch as cyclists confront the scenic but unforgiving, hilly terrain of the main event, the World Ranked UCI Tour of Tobago, dubbed by many, “Beauty and the Beast”, on Sunday.
Over 110 international and regional cyclists from 25 countries will participate in this year’s event which is unprecedented anywhere in this region.
International viewers in over 200 cities around the world will be captivated by ESPN’s broadcast of the 2013 Tobago Cycling Classic experience.
Tobago will be abuzz of activity as the organisers will introduce a series of Mountain Bike races through the scenic trails of Tobago’s rain forest.
