The national team sprint trio of Keron Bramble, Njisane Phillip and Kwesi Browne will look for more silverware when the third leg of the 2014/2015 UCI (International Cycling Union) World Cup series pedals off today in Santiago de Cali, Colombia.
The trio won gold on January 9 at the Milton International Challenge in Ontario, Canada. Bramble, Phillip and Browne were convincing in victory, snatching gold in a time of 46.356 seconds. Host team Canada was a distant second in 47.617, while the Sprinters Edge Club rounded off the top three in 48.239. The trio used the Milton Challenge as preparation for the UCI World Cup.
After competing in the team sprint today, Browne will line up in the men’s keirin tomorrow and Phillip will aim for a medal in the men’s sprint on Sunday. Browne and Phillip won bronze in the men’s keirin and men’s sprint respectively at the Milton International Challenge.
In November 2013 at the first leg of the 2013/2014 World Cup series in England, Phillip became the first T&T cyclist to win a medal at the UCI World Cup. Phillip won silver in the men’s sprint, finishing behind German rider Robert Forstemann.
