Jamaica Cycling Federation (JCF), organisers of tomorrow's Sligoville Time Trial Challenge, are hoping to attract a competitive field of riders at this year's staging, slated for 7 o'clock tomorrow morning, along the Sligoville main road, in St Catherine.

Pre-race formalities include registration from 6 to 6:30 a.m.

The 8.7 metres route will start at the base of the Sligoville main road, and finish at the top of the hill, which neighbours the Sligoville Multi-purpose Sports Complex.

Registration cost for individual riders is $500 while riders who are not holders of a current/valid JCF license will have to purchase one for $1,000 before they can enter.

The race will be open to all categories of riders including elite men and women. There is a category for recreational, also known as category five riders, while juniors, masters and super masters can also compete. All competitors will converge at an assembly point at the Juici Patties location, at the Roundabout in Bog Walk, St Catherine.

Registration for tomorrow's time trial will be open until just before the start of the race. Prizes, awards and presentations will be made to individuals, and respective category winners following the event.
