Antiguan Jyme Bridges (Team DPS) showed some love for the podium on Valentine's Day when the curtains came down on the 2016 TTCF Crit Series. The event, which was sponsored by Mike's Bikes at the Diego Martin Highway saw Bridges walking away with the top prize after winning the Main Event, a 45min + 2Laps Points Race around the 1.8km course. Bridges' win, saw him equal on overall Crit Series Points with Barbadian, Jamol Eastmond (Heatwave) but took the win by virtue of winning the last race.
In the Points Race event, a mad dash for the line by Jamol Eastmond (Heatwave) saw him winning the final sprint just ahead of young Jabari Whiteman (Southclaine). By that time Bridges was comfortably on 14 points with Eastmond finishing on 11pts and Gavyn Nero (Team DPS) on 10pts in third.
In the Elite Women category, Teniel Campbell (Team DPS) once again captured the Elite Women category as she continued her unbeaten run for 2016 thus far. Nicholas Paul (Breakaway CC) captured the Junior Men 2 Laps event ahead of Tyler Cole (Team DPS), which gave him enough points to take the overall Crit Series title for Junior Men.
In a first, the TTCF has also awarded prizes for the most consistent cyclists by calculating the times for all cyclists who completed each of the Main events. Jamol Eastmond (Heatwave) would take that award finishing in an aggregate time of 1:42:18.4 with Gevan Samuel (The Braves) and Sheldon Ramjit (Hummingbirds) rounding out the top 3, a mere 2 seconds behind.
