The Trinidad & Tobago Cycling Federation this weekend certified 13 Race Mechanics for the first time in the organization’s 56 year existence. The course which has come into high praise by many, including those partaking in same, is yet another implementation that the TTCF has forged forward with to ensure the development of the sport in a holistic way.

The 13 newly TTCF certified race mechanics vary from throughout Trinidad & Tobago and have already put plans in place to established T&T’s first ever Bicycle Mechanics Association in an effort to further professionalize their trade and foster even better relationships with the cycling fraternity and the standing committees of the TTCF.
