Joel Borland, a member of the DigiCell cycling team, won the 26th annual Krem New Year’s Day cycling classic in solo fashion, crossing the finish line in 3:55:42, well over 30 seconds before a group of riders came sprinting in for second place.

The 90-mile ride started at the northern border and finished shortly after 1:00 p.m. on Central American Boulevard, near its junction with Mahogany Street.

Gregory Lovell, also of Team DigiCell, edged out Byron Pope of Benny’s Megabytes for second place.

In the female category, Belize Bank’s Alicia Thompson outsprinted C-Ray’s Kaya Cattouse in a photo-finish to successfully defend her title. Cattouse later blamed an escort police mobile of getting in her way during the sprint at the finish.

Ernest “Jawmeighan” Bradley, the son of the late decorated cyclist, Ernest “Jawmeighan” Meighan, won the junior division race.

Belizeans Dominate Krem Classic

New Year's Eve may be the big party night - but for sports fans and race watchers the real hype of new year's is on the day itself, January First - the date for the KREM New Year's Day Cycling Classic - which is the first big race on the annual cycling calendar. In it's 26th running, this 2016 edition was different: no foreign riders were allowed on local teams, which left the field wide open for Belizean cyclists. It also made for an exciting race out there on the road - our cameraman Codie Norales was with them on the back of a motorbike - and we put together this report:..

Jawmeighn Jr Won Again

And while that was the finish for the elite males, the junior race was much closer: it had a dramatic sprint - we have the call from Malcolm Hyde and Press Cadogan on KREM TV:...

Winner Ernest Bradley, is the son of Ernest Jawmeighan Meighan - and wasn't inclined to brag about his victory.

Alicia Thompson won the women's race - also in a sprint to edge out Kaya Cattouse.

Doping suspensions have shaken up the local cycling scene. The first and second place finisher in the KREM New Year's Cycling Classic have been stripped of their places and prizes. Greg Lovell who came in first and Byron Pope who came in second have been removed from the race's final classification, and replaced with third place finisher Joel Borland, who is now first, Justin Williams who goes from fourth to second, and Johnny Valencia, who is now third.

And before we leave tonight, a small correction to our final story last night. Cyclist Joel Borland was the winner of the Krem New Year's Classic on race day. He retains that hold on first place, but the original second and third place finishers, Greg Lovell and Byron Pope have been stripped of their second and third places due to testing positive for banned substances. So with the revised results, Justin Williams now takes second, and Johnny Vlaencia takes third. The two riders also lose all their station prizes.
