A new era in local cycling was ushered in this morning in faraway Minsk, the capital of Belarus, as the 5th UCI World Cup event started with the Team Sprint.

This country has a four-man team in Belarus led by the two-time Olympian Njisane Phillip alongside other talented stars like the speedy Nicholas Paul, Kwesi Browne and Keron Bramble.

While all four saw action this morning in the Team Sprint event, Kwesi Brown will go in the men's Keirin tomorrow, while Njisane and Nicholas will go in the Flying 200 to determine placings for the much anticipated Match Sprint event.

On the eve of the event, the team which left these shores a week ago for the chilly conditions in Minsk, appeared relaxed and focussed, despite the cold conditions.

Immediately after the official Opening Ceremony, the Men's Team Sprint took centre stage where Team TTO was among the participants.

And it’s great news for T&T as the four-man team put on a show to finish eighth fastest with a superb time of 44.653 seconds.

More importantly, they are safely through to tomorrow's second round set for around 5am.
