Family, friends and scores of bikers held a special event today to pay tribute to their fallen brother Quincy Jones, who died last week while riding his motorcycle along Welches, St Michael.

Coordinator of the event Adrian Mayers told Barbados TODAY  it started at the race track at Bushy Park, St Philip where Jones “plied his trade”, took the form of a ride from that location to the spot at Welches where he died.

“We gathered at Bushy Park in the pits where Quincy would have honed his craft and raced. Then we had a procession that moved from Bushy Park to this spot here; and everybody came out and celebrated. I was overwhelmed with the support of his friends and family and the motoring fraternity who came out to honour Quincy,” said Mayers while standing on the fringes of the roundabout.

He disclosed that a plaque would be erected in the pits, which Jones would have occupied at Bushy Park, as a permanent memorial to “this hero”, who died on National Heroes Day.

Jones, Barbados’ fourth road fatality for the year, was the father of two boys and was looking forward to the birth of his third child.
