B-Class, Timothy Thomas got the most points to win the overall B-class, he was followed by Andre Simon who placed 2nd overall and Abevia McDonald 3rd.

The Lucozade sponsored event was started in 2008 as a gesture by the distributor, Frank B. Armstrong, in recognition of one of Antigua’s greatest rider of all times, Robert Peters. Robert Peters was sponsored by Lucozade for most of his elite cycling career during the 1990's. The 1994 National Sportsman of the year was also on hand to present the prizes to the winners.

The team consists of Jyme Bridges, Robert Marsh, Omari King, Cosmos Richardson, and Marvin Spencer. The riders will compete on a 71 mile cross country in the hilly terrain of Grenada.
