SOUTHPORT - Dozens of cyclists gathered today as part of TeamBrent, a cycling team taking part in the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge to raise money to fight cancer.

The team is named for Brent McCreesh, 10, who eight years ago suffered from stage IV neuroblastoma.

McCreesh survived and now cyclists will raise funds by making the 200-mile ride across Massachusetts.

TeamBrent says it expects to raise $400,000 from this year's ride.
