The 2015 staging of the Jamaica Cycling Federation (JCF) Track Championships have been set for Saturday, Spetember 12 and Sunday, September 13 at the National Stadium Cycle Track. Action for the first day is slated to get started at 12:00 PM while on the final day’s action gets underway at 12:30PM. Registration will take place on day one from 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM.

The meet is expected to feature some of Jamaica’s finest riders including 2014 Commonwealth Games cyclist, Marloe Rodman and former national representative Oneil Samuels. The annual Track Championships will include women’s and men’s elite, masters and junior categories and will also have an open recreational 6 lap race for anyone interested in testing their skills.

Dr. Wayne Palmer, head of the JCF Race Committee and overseer for the 2015 Championships is excited about the event as Jamaican cycling looks to return to the summit of world competitions.

“We are expecting a very exciting championship this year as there has been a rejuvenated interest in Jamaican cycling. The championships will be a marquee event which will showcase the calibre riders we have locally and will be a great test for the various clubs and riders to contend at a competitive level. We have had riders gradually increasing their participation in International competitions with Marloe Rodman participating at the most recent Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. The aim is to have Jamaica represented in cycling at the 2016 Rio Olympics and this is just another step in that direction for our riders,” said Dr. Palmer.

Jamaica has had good international success in cycling with the ace in hand being a Bronze medal performance by David Weller at the 1980 Moscow Olympic Games in the 1KM Time Trial event. To date, that is Jamaica’s only medal outside of Track and Field at the Olympic Games.

The Jamaica Cycling Federation was established in the 1960’s. The organization was established to help govern cycling as a sport in the Jamaica in its competitive fields of Mountain Bike, Road and Track. As the governing body of cycling, the JCF facilitates the organization and development of the National Team along with the effective growth and progression of cycling in Jamaica.
