Lawrence Adjei overpowered national champion Anthony Boakye to win the maiden edition of the Ojatson Sports Foundation Cycling Championship, held at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.

He made an astonishing sprint finish of 1:42:10 secs to emerge the winner of the competition. 

Over one hundred cyclists registered and took part in the competition, especially with the tenacity and grit to 66km distance in 20 laps.

However, the first three laps were just to familiarise the road network in the starting lineup with the likes of Anthony Boakye, Lawrence Adjei, and Frank Akuffo among others.

In the Men’s Elite category was a 66km distance of a brawling circuit amassing an average speed of 38.76km/hr.

In the female category, Erica Sedzro placed first, followed by Abigail Ayehkie Tetteh and Paulina Yaa Mensah placed third respectively.

All the participants were awarded a certificate and a cash prize for their efforts.

The Ojatson Sports Foundation Championship has injected some urgency into the riders especially as the country prepares to host the Africa Road Paracycling Championships next month.

Mr. Joseph Ojatson Chief Organiser of the event was highly elated at the inaugural organization of the race with the belief that the next edition would be greater.

Ghana would be hosting the rest of Africa for the 19th edition of the African Road Cycling Championship scheduled to take place at Ablekuma Ollebu in Accra.
