THE NEW FACE of local cycling could be eyeing yet another rare feat.
Today may very well be the start of history for young Joshua Kelly, as the Caribbean champ turned overseas-based pro begins his quest for the ever-elusive national double this weekend when he opens the road race at 6 a.m. as the odds-on favourite.
With the National Championship returning to last year’s gruelling Bushy Park course, everything sets up nicely for a senior title breakthrough for the gifted 20-year-old, who will more than feel at home on the long Stewart Hill climb.
It only helps matters further that Kelly is coming off a productive pro stint in France, where the natural climber presumably faced tougher and more undulating courses than what the St Philip circuit will present.
