Sunday, April 14th. – By Marion Ali –
Kaya Cattouse, veteran female rider from the C-Ray Cycling team bested a field of 10 other riders to snag this year’s 30th Annual Female Cross Country Cycling Classic today.

After 70 grueling miles from in front of the Colombus Park in San Ignacio Town, Cayo, Kaya Cattouse, crossed the finish line on Newtown Barracks  in Belize City first. Alicia Thompson was second.

Nicole Gallego, a rider who just started training seven months ago, was one of only five riders who came in together into Belize City around noon today and she was the one who started the sprint to the fnish line. She placed fourth.

Two Mexican riders also placed among the top five, one of whom took a wrong turn at the entrance to Belize City and then braked prematurely near the finish line, having thought she had crossed the finish line already.

Maria Camargo later told reporters that there was no barriers that closed off the entrance to Cemetery Road and she had to divert through the Uno Gas Station to catch up with the rest of the pack on Central American Boulevard. She added that there was also a line near the end of the finish which she thought was the finish line and criticized that there was no signage to guide the riders as to where the finish line actually was. She did say that she would return next year to participate in the race.
