National cyclist Garvin Nero and national junior cyclist Teneil Campbell were the standout riders when the endurance night of the second T&T Cycling Federation (TTCF) Track Series was held at the Arima Velodrome on Sunday night.

In the headline event, Nero won the 33-lap event for elite one, elite two and invitational riders. Nero representing Team Drive Phase Sport (DPS), got the better of his in-form teammate Russel Elcock of Barbados. Elcock has been in top form this year defeating a competitive field to capture the second leg of the TTCF Road Series on January 24.
