Caxito – Bruno Araújo, from the Bai Sicasal Petro de Luanda team, won this Sunday the 30th National Road Cycling Championship, in the elite category, held in northern Bengo Province.

 

The champion clocked 4 hours 19 minutes 57 seconds in the 150-kilometre race.

 

The podium was also shared by Adilson Zacarias (second place with 4h19m58sec) and Mário de Carvalho (third place with 4h24min54sec), both from the Bai Sicasal Petro de Luanda team. 

 

In the classification by teams, Bai Sicasal Petro de Luanda conquered the first place with a time of 01h07min33sec, followed by Cabinda Team (01h38min31sec) and Bengo Team  (02h02min03sec).

 

The chairman of the Provincial Cycling Association of Bengo, Jorge Capita, considered the participation of Bengo Team positive, taking into account the lack of appropriate material that conditioned the preparation of the local team. 

 

In turn, the chairwoman of the Angolan Cycling Federation, Cremilde Rangel, said that this was the championship that was possible to hold, and praised the support of the local government.

 

More than 50 cyclists from the provinces of Bengo (host) and Cabinda took part in the event, with three teams each, while Luanda, Uíge, Cuanza Sul, Huíla and Lunda Norte, had only one representative each.
