Emotional Luces wins for dad, Kent

Monday, January 13, 2014
Cyclist Barry Luces leads the field in yesterday’s first Cycling Federation road race of the year.

Barry Luces of Rigtech Sonics, riding with a heavy heart, won the first T&T Cycling Federation road race of the year yesterday.


Luces’ father Kent Luces, a former national cyclist, passed away at age 63 on Tuesday from a heart attack. Barry broke the tape first in the 60 km trek from the Mucurapo Foreshore, Audrey Jeffers Highway to Couva, and back to the Foreshore. James Hadeed (Heatwave) and Paul Deverteuil (Corkies) finished second and third respectively.


Among the ladies, Christiane Farah took the top prize ahead of Bike Smith duo Tamiko Butler and Keiana Lester. Due to requests by the T&T Police Service, tinymites and junior women were not allowed to compete.


The funeral of Kent Luces will take place today at 3 pm at Guides Funeral Home, Coffee Street, San Fernando.
