Pacific Cycling Centre athlete Tamiko Butler won the Caribbean Cycling Championship Road Race last weekend in Antigua. She also came third in the Time Trial, using her road bike.

PCC Head Coach Houshang Amiri has been coaching the talented cyclist from Antigua for the past year, and experienced some training last summer in Victoria. “I was climbing much better than everyone and got a big gap on the second big hill in the first lap, but then got caught by the two from Puerto Rico,” Butler recalls from the road race. “I then attacked the first big hill in the second lap and got away with one of the Puerto Ricans. I was very dead coming to the line and she forced me to stay in front, but I won the sprint!” Butler was grateful for all the training from Amiri. “Those hill intervals I think have really worked for me as well as losing some weight. Thank you.”
