Augustine takes time trial honours
Micah Augustine dominated the day's activities by claiming the feature Time Trial and Open 'A' Finals events when the T&T Cycling Federation and Trailing Edge Mountain Bike Team held the opening Cross Country Mountain Bike Eliminator at U-Pick Farm Farms, Chaguaramas on Sunday.
The MTB Kings rider stormed home ahead of a large field in the time trials event in a time of one hour, 53 minutes and seven seconds for the gold medal, holding off Ryan Mendes, the Slipstream rider who finished 14 seconds behind in 2:00.07.
National cyclist Enrique de Comarmond was third, riding for Inspira Castle Cemex Trek Cycling in a distant 2:06.50 seconds. Later Augustine jumped on his bike and won the Open 'A' event for his second title on the day. His closest challenger was again Mendes, a former national triathlon champion who proved Sunday that age was just a number.
Comarmond was again third in the event, completing a top three finish by the same riders that won in the time trial.
Meanwhile David Hackshaw who was sixth in the time trial, rebounded to secure the win in the Open 'B' Finals for Slipstream, with Nicholas Walter in second and Jean-Luc James-Smith in third, riding unattached.
