Results Given of Angel Encarnacion Road Race Held on Sunday

Peter Duthie, winner of the Masters Category On a dreary, rainy Sunday morning nearly 20 cyclists met up in Frederiksted for a race that commemorated Virgin Islands Elite cyclist Angel Encarnación, who died tragically in 2001. Angel, also known as the Silent Sprinter, often won races in the final sprint to the finish. This morning’s Elite race also came down to a sprint to the line between Mark Defour and Glenn Massiah. Defour nudged out Massiah in the end with a time of 1:18:02 for the 27-mile race. Narian Gentius was third. The race was shortened from 10 laps to six laps because of the wet weather and poor road conditions through La Grange.
The Expert race, which was changed from six laps to five laps, was also faced with a sprint among the top four finishers. Deve Barbour was the first to reach, with Jonathan Cruz, Miguel Cruz and Juancito Gario just inches behind. All four received a time of 1:11:56 for the 22.5-mile race.
The Sport category rode hard in the driving rain as well for their 18-mile race. When Ivan Espinosa abandoned the race during lap three after catching a flat tire, Joey Swanson and Valentino Gario continued the push to first place. Joey was the victor; Valentino was just a second behind in second place; Judy Gario, Valentino’s mom, was third. It was a successful day for the Gario family.
The Masters field was separated by the second lap of their 18-mile race. Peter Duthie gained more time on his compadres with each lap and finished more than three minutes ahead of second place finisher Jimmy Warren. Fred Rollins was third.
The next race on the schedule is the East End Road race at 7 a.m. on Sunday, July 14. Distances: 39 miles, 26 miles, 13 miles. The V.I. Championship races have been moved to Aug. 3 and Aug 4.
