SICILIAN PODIUM FOR SCIBERRAS

Birkirkara St. Joseph Sports Club cyclist Steve Sciberras recently returned from a very successful showing in the first race of the Grand Tour Sicilia Time Trial Championships.

Competing in the Medio Fondo category consisting of a 14.5km time trial, Sciberras had to contend with a field of 113 cyclists who were playing on home turf.

Sciberras, who over the years, garnered substantial experience in time trial racing completed two loops of the 14.5km circuit in 20:51.153 a few seconds behind the first two athletes to take up an overall third placing on the podium. His result also saw him take second place in his age group.

“The race was very well attended – not only from a competitor perspective but also spectator wise - the route was closed throughout so it made easier viewing for the public – not easy for the only Maltese playing in field where all competitors are playing home but I dug deep and put my training and preparation came into good use.

Sciberras is now looking forward to continue his participation on the local circuit. His recent outing saw him clinch third place in the Elite category in the Zebbug Mass Start cycling race organised by Mosta Cycling Club.

Sciberras’ participation in the Grand Tour Sicilia Championships was made possible through the support of Birkirkara St Joseph Sports Club, Garmin Malta, Sport Malta and Carrera Bikes Malta.
