Hopkins Withdraws from Valencian Memorial Road Race

Kaden Hopkins was one of six Equipo Essax Cyclists to withdraw from the Valencian Memorial in Spain after several crashes took place.

Heavy rain added a test and accompanied the cyclists from the first hour. Cyclists looked to set a fast pace right from the start, but the conditions made things extremely tough.

Pau Miquel representing Team Lizarte, made an attack from Alto de San Miguel 25 kilometers from the finish line along with two other teammates, Igor Arrieta and Eugenio Sánchez, signing an exceptional career finale.

Miquel crossed the line in a time of 3:53.05, Igor Arrieta was second clocking 3:54.33, and Pablo Uria was third clocking 3:55.05.

A total of 83 riders finished, with more than 80 other riders including Hopkins pulling out of the race.

Sinclair Packwood Memorial Race Not on BBA Schedule

It would appear that the Bermuda Bicycle Association has decided to cancel the Sinclair Packwood Memorial Race (SPMR) that is usually held on Bermuda Day.

According to their tentative Plan Schedule, the Sinclair Packwood Memorial race does not appear on the list, with an Individual Time Trial scheduled for the day after Bermuda Day.

Peter Dunne the President of the Bermuda Bicycle Association in response to a question from www.islandstats.com said, “We currently do not have it in our tentative calendar.

You will have noted that in May we are looking at just time trials which are easier to run in Covid conditions than a mass start race such as the SPMR.

For us to be able to have this event we would need events to permit up to 50 people and remain compliant.

If the community gets to the point where Government permits larger events then I am sure we will revisit this important race.

What makes the SPMR special is the huge number of spectators along the route and in Hamilton. It appears that an event attracting such numbers is beyond the expectations of the Government at this time.

I know that the Half Marathon Derby organizers are holding off until May 1st to determine if they will open their event to registrations, and the BBA could use a similar timeline.

This assumes that the Corporation of Hamilton, Corporation of St. George, and necessary public resources are willing and available.

Fingers crossed that the health of the community improves rapidly so that this and other important events in the calendar can resume.”

Tentative Plan

May 2nd - Individual Time Trial
May 15th - Individual Time Trial
May 23rd - Marathon XC - Ferry Reach
May 30th - Individual Time Trial
June 6th - Team Time Trial
June 20th - Time Trial Championships - Clearwater
June 27th - Road Race National Championships
July 4th - MTB National Championships - Ferry Reach

Hopkins Competes in Amorebieta Road Race in Spain

Kaden Hopkins and his Equipo Essax teammates competed in the Amorebieta 110.9 km Road Race this Easter Sunday morning in Spain.

The Biscayne test was marked by the fast pace that was carried from the starting flag, which barely allowed some cyclists looking to shape the getaway of the day to gain a few seconds of advantage on the initial circuit between the towns of Amorebieta, Lemoa, Usansolo, and Galdakao, to end up being quickly absorbed back by the platoon.

Mikel Retegi led home a group of 7 riders that were separated by 4 seconds, Retegi and Vincente Santamaria both had a time of 2:32.18, with Igor Lizarraga, Pau Delgado, and Angel Gonzalez all clocking 2:32.19. Imanol Arriola and Hopkins teammate Steven Criollo both clocking 2:32.22.

Hopkins competing for the first time in four weeks finished 66th overall with a time of 2:35.34, Hopkins’ job in the race was to ride for the Team climber, he also covered and worked breaks for the first 70 km to get to the main climb which he did.
