However, the moment which announced his intention to be a contender was at the UCI Class 3 Easter International Grand Prix when he finished a surprising fourth among his Elite compatriots.
Also moving up into Elite 1 on the track are Gavyn Nero and James Hadeed who both gained automatic promotion due to their selection to Elite National Teams at the Caribbean Track and Pan American Track Championships. Inaddition, After being considerably consistent in the Elite 3 category on the Track in 2015, Marc Pogson has also gained his right to promotion into the Elite 2 category on the track and will be looking to quickly possibly move into the Elite 1 category by 2017.
