This year the motor bike events are quickly becoming the main allure, with Mohammed Enterprise bringing two International riders to compete; not to mention the usual suspects such as Mathew, Stephen and Elliot Vieira, who will be battling for the CMRC Super stock title.

Speaking to the rider on Sunday as he underwent practice sessions at the circuit, he explained that despite some top riders will be on show he is no way daunted by the challenge.

“Having all these hyped competitors is a motivation for me, it is helping me reach where I want; I’m actually glad for it and the experience”, the biker stated.

Persaud’s machine of choice is a 2011 Kawasaki  ZX6R, which he explained  is “working pretty perfect.” He is hoping to get some fine tuning done to get it to its  maximum potential. “Right now it is working at 80%  hopefully the tune guy gets it to 100%”.

Last November, the rider finished second, third and fourth respectively in his three races and is most enthused about bettering his performances this coming Sunday.
“Everyone is always looking to do better and I’m excited about the prospect[s] of doing even better than last year; I really can’t wait for Sunday”, he confidently stated.

Quizzed on what fans can expect he responded saying, “I’m hoping to give the fans a threat, give them a good time, so come Sunday, it will be fun!”
The motor biker who began competing since the age of 14, will be attending his fourth Caribbean Championship and has already begun making plans  travel to the other three legs (Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados) next year. (Guyana Times)
