Fadi Confiance and Dominic Arrisol accept their prize from Fadi’s father

The 36.3km event started at the ‘Roche Tortue’ monument near the Seychelles International Airport, Pointe Larue and the cyclists had to pedal to the Eden Island roundabout via the Providence Highway and back to Pointe Larue.  They covered the course three times.

The riders were released as a duo and had to cross the line together for their time to be counted. Dominic Arrisol, who had been impressive this year, crossed the line together with Eco Riders teammate Fadi Confiance to earn a first place finish in 49 minutes 46.17 seconds.

Another Eco Riders team of Francis Louis and Chris Germain crossed the line after 50 minutes 44.72 seconds for second place and a one-two finish for the team who have taken cycling by storm this year.

Edward Pothin and Ricky Rosalie of the St Francis team managed to finish on the podium in third place in a time of 50 minutes 50.80 seconds.

The three other teams who took part were Eco Riders’ Raoul Gomme and Richard Felix (fourth with 53 minutes 37.81 seconds), Journey cycling club’s Peter Alphonse and Mario Joubert (fifth with 54 minutes 09.99 seconds) and Journey cycling club’s Ahmad Arissol and Jean-Yves Souyave (sixth with 54 minutes 15.52 seconds).

Eco Riders finished as the best team with a combined time of 2 hours 34 minutes 07 seconds.
