MAYBE DARREN MATTHEWS shouldn’t have come back home after all.

The country’s best endurance cyclist definitely went the distance yesterday, having destroyed a star-studded senior field when he rode away with the National Road Race Championships by almost ten minutes on the Bushy Park/Stewart’s Hill course.

It proved sweet justification for the standout 24-year-old Team Swift cyclist, who reaffirmed his status as Barbados’ best road rider after being overseas for the last three national title races following his first championship win in 2011.

But his last absence proved costly, with Matthews being left off of last year’s team to the Caribbean Road Race Championships for failing to meet the selection criteria – which included that 2014 National Road Race. (JM)
