PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad – Barbadian cyclist Quincy Jones was named to the West Indies cycling team to oppose the World Team in the Beacon Cycling Series that starts Wednesday night at Queen's Park Savannah.

This was revealed yesterday at a Press briefing at the VIP Lounge of Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo, Trinidad.

The West Indies team also includes five riders from Trinidad and Tobago – Elisha Greene, Emile Abraham, Winzy Mohammed, Joshua Alexander and Christopher Sellier. Also making the grade are Guyanese Marlon Williams and Onell Samuels of Jamaica.

The series, the brainchild of the Beacon Insurance Group, is being held to revive the popularity of the sport in the Caribbean and will continue until April 20
with events being hosted at Arima Velodrome, Skinner Park and Tobago's Market Square.

Something special

Racing promoter Michael Phillips, who founded the event in partnership with Beacon's Gerald Hadeed, said those planning to attend could expect to be a part of something special.

"What we aim to do is bring elements of Carnival into our cycling, making it a true cycling cultural festival," he said.

This year will also be the first year the series will be televised internationally, marking another important step in the growth of the annual event.
