Spiteri and Vella Wood clinch Carrera Garmin BBB Birkirkara St. Joseph Individual Time Trial Series titles

Gavin Muscat

Birkirkara St. Joseph Sports Club’s Wayne Spiteri has had a successful cycling season with solid and consistent performances throughout, so his first overall place in the Carrera Garmin BBB Individual Time Trial Series organised by Birkirkara St. Joseph Sports Club came as no surprise.

Although battling stiff competition from the likes of Etienne Bonello (Team Greens) and Maurice Formosa (The Cyclist CC), Spiteri dominated the Individual Time Trial Series from the very start. The Mtarfa circuit, which belies the undulating nature of the course, was not Spiteri’s best time, however he completed the course in 30 minutes flat, well ahead of Bonello and Formosa.

In the females’ category, no changes were registered on the female podium however it was Birkirkara St. Joseph’s Michelle Vella Wood who, by winning the last race of the series pipped Team Greens cyclist Marie Claire Aquilina to first place.  The Cyclist CC Stephanie Alden came in third place.

Prizes were also distributed to the winners in the various Age Group categories.

Whilst the Carrera Garmin BBB Birkirkara St. Joseph Individual Time Trial Series take place outside of the cycling season, races have been welcomed by cyclists who feel that such races are beneficial to their preparation for the forthcoming season.

Spiteri u Vella Wood jiddominaw is-serje tal- Carrera Garmin BBB Birkirkara St. Joseph Individual Time Trials

Bis-suċċess li iċ-ċiklista tal-Birkirkara Saint Joseph Sports Club Wayne Spiteri kellu matul l-istaġun taċ- ċikliżmu, kompla jintwera fis-serje Carrera Garmin BBB Time Trial Serje organizzata mill-Birkirkara St. Joseph Sports Club.

Għalkemm Spiteri kellu kompetizzjoni iebsa minn ċiklisti bħall Etienne Bonello (Team Greens) u Maurice Formosa (The Cylist CC), Spiteri iddomina is-Serje mill-bidu nett. Għalkemm fil-korsa tal-Imtarfa, li hija kkunsidrata l-iktar korsa iebsa mit-tlett korsijiet mgħażula għal din is-serje ma pproducietx l-aħjar ħin ta’ Spiteri, madankollu huwa temm it-tellieqa f’ħin ta 30 minuta, sew qabel Bonello u Formosa.

Fil-kategorija tan-nisa, ma kien hemm l-ebda tibdil irreġistrata fuq il-podju madankollu kienet Michelle Vella Wood (Birkirkara Saint Joseph) li  rebħet kemm it-tellieqa tal-ġurnata kif ukoll it-titlu tas-serje. Iċ-ċiklista veterana tat-Team Greens Marie Claire Aquilina ħadet it-tieni post, segwita minn Stephanie Alden (The Cyclist CC) li daħlet fit-tielet post.

Wara it-tellieqa tqassmu il-premijiet  lir-rebbieħa fil- kategoriji varji.

Filwaqt li l- Carrera Garmin BBB Birkirkara St. Joseph Individual Time Trial Series iseħħu barra mill-istaġun taċ-ċikliżmu, it-tlielaq kienu apprezzati miċ-ċiklisti li ħassew li dawn it- tiġrijiet huma ta’ benefiċċju għall- preparazzjoni tagħhom għall-istaġun li jmiss.
