Cycling Association to target junior cyclists through BMX

The Cayman Islands Cycling Association is focusing on developing its junior programme next year.

On Sunday (23 October) Cycling Association President Craig Merren hoped to see more junior cyclists on their bikes for the final Cost You Less Circuit race of the year.

Mr. Merren says the association is looking to revamp their cycling programme to focus on bringing kids back to the track, through BMX.

“Our plan for 2017 and moving forward is to invest in a few, BMX pump tracks, as well as freestyle at the skate park. It’s very difficult to get 13 and 14-year-old, but in my era the 80s to come out and do this sort of riding today. 14-year-old aren’t going to do that, you have to tap into them at 4 or 5 years old.”

The CUI Circuit, consisted of 45 minutes plus three laps and will resume next year.
