Trinidad and Tobago cyclists

CREAM OF THE CROP: Trinidad and Tobago cyclists, from left, Keron Bramble, Kwesi Browne, Njisane Phillip and Nicholas Paul, during a training session at the Anna Meares Velodrome in Brisbane, Australia, last week. Phillip, Paul and Browne will be back at the venue this morning (T&T time), competing in the men’s team sprint qualifying round.

“Continued improvement” is the goal set by Trinidad and Tobago Cycling Federation (TTCF) technical director and national coach Erin Hartwell for the four wheelmen who will wear national colours at the 2018 Commonwealth Games here in Brisbane, Australia. And from all indications, Njisane Phillip, Nicholas Paul, Kwesi Browne and Keron Bramble are on course to achieve the target.

“The guys are firing,” Hartwell told the Express. “They’re doing personal bests in training. I’m very happy with the preparation so far. We have a strong group of young men and we’re as ready as we’re going to be.”
