“We want people to come out and see some top class cycling at the NCC (National Cycling Centre): Trinidad and Tobago versus the Rest of the World.” Desmond Roberts, head of the organising committee for the UNI-sanctioned Per­fec­tion Ser­vices Lim­it­ed (PSL) Fire On Wheels event that pedals off in Balmain, Couva over the next two days, was making his pitch.

The event at the state-of-the-art fa­cil­i­ty will be the venue’s first action in over a year after it was sidelined because of problems with the air-conditioning system, indispensable to maintain the integrity and safety of the 250-metre wooden track.
