Astrum Helicopters managed to capture a unique view of the 85th annual Holy Saturday Cross Country Cycling Classic which took place on Saturday March 30th, 2013.

Organized by the Belize Cycling Association, the race attracted 87 riders included 6 from the USA, 10 Mexicans and 2 Guatemalans. Belizean Darnell Barrow is the big 2013 winner after crossing the finish line in a surprise sprint from behind. Barrow completed the 139.6-mile race in 5 hours 46 minutes and 49 seconds, ahead of 40 other riders who completed the competition.

Flying overhead for the entirety of the race, Astrum caught the amazing bird’s eye view of the cycling classic, from when the riders left Belize City to San Ignacio and back to the exciting sprint finish which landed Barrow the title of champion, and kept the garland in Belize for the second year in a row.
