Division One riders start their ten-lap race, on the first stage of the Tobago Cycling Classic, from Milford Road Extension, Shaw Park, on Friday. – David Reid MIAMI Blazers’ Jonny Browne, of the United States, topped the field of division one cyclists to win stage one of the Tobago International Cycling Classic (TICC) which rode off on Milford Road on Friday.

Browne completed the 10-lap, 100-kilometre circuit in two hours, 14 minutes and 19 seconds (2:14.19) to take an early lead on the three-stage tour.

Team Foundation’s Matio Garcia (Colombia) finished in a close second, in 2:14.22, followed by countryman and two-time TICC winner Oscar Pachon, who clocked 2:14.24.

Browne’s fellow American teammate Mason Schofield (2:15.05) rounded off the top four finishers.

After the race, Browne was pleased to open his TICC debut campaign with a victory. He was happy to quell rumours that Miami Blazers was the “fun” team.

“Now people know we’re not here for fun anymore. They’re going to be looking at us a bit more, knowing how strong we are.
