Former Trinidad and Tobago road racer Ronald Peters gave a fine performance in securing four medals at the 2005 Cycling World Masters Games, last week, in Edmonton, Canada.
Peters had two gold medal finishes and a couple bronze medal finishes as well, riding in five events in the 60-64 age category.
All of Peters' medals came on the track. He grabbed gold in his favourite event, the five kilometre scratch race. He also won the 200m individual time trial in a time of 12.420 seconds, after being set a time of 12.875 to win.
In the 2,000m individual pursuit Peters bagged bronze in two minutes, 53.90 seconds, while his fourth medal came in the 500m individual time trial, in 41.11.
Peters was satisfied with his performance at the Games, but still sees room for improvement in some events.
"I've seen improvement with my times in the flying 200 metres event, but I still think I need to improve on my time trial and pursuit times."
"In the scratch race," Peters continued, "you just don't let any break get away and I think I can control that. In other events you can't control (that)."
Last year, Peters, who is a former Trinidad and Tobago Cycling Federation (TTCF) official, was the most successful T&T cyclist at the Pam Am Masters in Cuba, bagging eight medals, including five gold, two silver and one bronze, in the 60-64 age group.
"I went to the Pan Am Masters Games in Cuba (last year), which is held every year in October, so I would like to go there and defend the titles I won last year."
Peters expressed his gratitude to Tracmac Engineering for financial help in getting to the World Masters.
"I would like to extend my thanks to my former employers Tracmac Engineering, who were instrumental in getting me here," Peters said.
