Teniel Takes Double Title In Trinidad & Tobago

Teniel Campbell enjoyed a dominant weekend at the 2024 Trinidad and Tobago national championships by claiming victories in both the time trial and road race. The 26-year-old  Liv AlUla Jayco rider began the championships with a win in the 25.2km time trial on Saturday followed by the 147km road race on Sunday. This will be Teniel’s second time wearing the national jersey in both disciplines, after winning them both the last time she competed in the event in 2022.

The road race was a mass start event, with the elite women racing alongside the elite men and juniors over the demanding terrain in hot and humid conditions.This was not an issue for Campbell, who showed once again that she is the strongest female cyclist in the country by winning the elite women’s competition and challenging the fastest men in the country to fifth place overall.

Teniel Campbell said after her double victory, “I’ve lost track of how many national titles I’ve won over the past races. Usually, it’s difficult for me to return home for nationals as it always clashes with my European program, but I’m happy that I could come home and race it this year. It’s always beautiful to race with the tricolour on the back.

Due to the lack of numbers we have in the women’s category, we race with the men, and I wanted to demolish them all! The most challenging factor for me is the heat and humidity. It gets extremely hot here on the island, between 38 to 48 degrees with 100% humidity. Some bits of the course are even below sea level so it was a hard day out!”
