The National Cycling Association will this week head to Lunsar for the final trial to select those who will represent Sierra Leone in the second edition of the ECOWAS peace cycling tour in Liberia.
The president of the association, Winston Crowther, said the trial should have taken place in Makeni but because of the limited time left for the competition the executive decided to start the trials at the National Stadium to Lunsar and back.
He mentioned that about 12 elite cyclists would take part in the trials, and the best six cyclists would be selected to make the trip next week.
Crowther noted that they had met with the director of sports Saidu Mansaray concerning the programme.
President Crowther said they were certain of wining the second edition as defending champions because the squad was well prepared.
He disclosed that Ivory Coast had shown interest in taking part in this second edition alongside the three Mano River Union countries
Crowther said they wanted to bring the trophy home for the second time as a gift to the new government, adding that footballers had done their own when they qualified by eliminating Guinea Bissau recently.
