“I really had no expectations as it was my first cycling championships so of course, I was over the moon when I was able to capture the silver medal in the 50k road race,”

“I really had no expectations as it was my first cycling championships so of course, I was over the moon when I was able to capture the silver medal in the 50k road race,” said Sharpe, who was also fourth in the 10k time trial.


“It was a good feeling that I was able to do well for Jamaica and I was happy for the other guys who were able to  represent Jamaica in a regional race for the first time. It was pretty awesome to enter my first cycling championships and do so well.”


Sharpe was part of a four-member team that Jamaica sent to the championships. The other team members were Stephen McCalla, Quacy Bruce and Malik Reid.
