SAINTS PREVIAL YET AGAIN

Following Wayne Spiteri’s victory in the first event of the season, Birkirkara St. Joseph’s Steve Sciberras and Michelle Vella Wood dominated the criterium cycling race organised by Team Greens at Hal Far on Sunday, 23 February 2014.

It was in the final kilometre of the race that Sciberras opened a gap from the main group, a move that brought an immediate and fast reaction by the ensuing cycling teams.  However attempts to reel him back were futile, as the Saints’ cyclist celebrated his victory with the rest in his wake.  Second finished national champion Etienne Bonello (Greens) and third finished Christian Formosa also of Greens.  Waylon Mifsud (Birkirkara St. Joseph) finished in seventh place.

In the females category, Michelle Vella Wood was in complete command of the race, and in the final stages she simply increased the tempo and managed to open an unassailable gap to cross the finish line in a comfortable lead.  Second female was Lara Buttigieg (Agones S.C.) and third finished Martina Pizzuto (Mosta C.C.).

 Birkirkara St. Joseph’s Cycling Team would like to thank their sponsors, namely Garmin Malta, BBB, Buff, Starbene and Go&Fun for their support, and the Kunsill Malti ghall-Isport for their 20/20 scheme to Steve Sciberras.
