A brilliant sunrise blanketed the BTL Park this morning as the cyclists arrived for the most grueling race in Belize. At exactly 5.50am this morning a field of 105 Pro-Cyclist are off to the greatest race in Belize, the 91st. annual cycle race of 144.8 miles (233Km) to San Ignacio Town and back to Belize City is predicted to be dynamic and a fast race that includes 88 Belizeans, 5 Mexicans, 8 Americans and 3 Guatemalans.

The record for the race is 5h 40m 12s was set back in 2008 by Ryan Baumann (142.7miles). Several years ago the finish line of the race was moved to BTL Park, and the recent Santa Elena addition to avoid the U Turn at the Hawkesworth Bridge and make the race less prone to accidents makes the new distance of the race exactly 144.8 miles.
