Former Cyclist Prince Tunji Lightfoot Taylor says he is always willing to support the promotion and development of the sport he cherish so much.
He made this statement during the presentation of cash prizes and trophies at the recently concluded 17th edition Western Area Cycling Picnic Race at Kent Beach.
The former cyclist personally provided cash prizes for the first three male winners; Augustine Sesay, Fallah Fayia, Hillary Garber and the only female rider that competed in the event Isata Mondeh.
Lightfoot Taylor told the cyclists to be dedicated in their training and maintain discipline as that is the only way an athlete will achieve his goal of becoming a champion.
“I practiced cycling during the late 60s and 70s as a school boy. In those days we didn’t have the opportunity of competing internationally but we manage what we have and did our best to keep the sport alive”.
“Cycling is part of my life and I will always give all necessary support to help promote the development of the sport in my own way. I donated bicycles to the association in 2016 and I will as well donate similar bicycles and other cycling equipment’s to your executive in April this year,” he promised.
He further applauded the current executive for their timeless effort to keep the sport moving. “I am very impressed with the organization and outcome of the race. It tells you have very ambitious executive members that have the passion of taking the sport to another level “he concluded.
