The Bermuda Bicycle Association (BBA) announced that CG Insurance has returned for a second year as the title sponsor for the upcoming National Road Championship Series.
"At CG, we are committed to building healthy, active lifestyles by uniting people together in sport. We believe in the importance of the BBA's vision to develop talent to represent Bermuda in cycling both locally and internationally. We're looking forward to the series of cycling events over the next few weekends." – CG Spokesperson
”Many of the Island’s top riders have returned to Bermuda to race for the Championship titles. Kaden Hopkins, Conor White, Nic Narraway, Liam Flannery and Zander Miller are all expected to raise the bar, but we cannot rule out the on-island riders” shares Deborah Titterton Narraway, BBA marketing & anti-doping representative. “Meanwhile Caitlin Conyers who is currently in Bermuda recovering from an earlier accident will challenge the likes of Nicole Mitchell and other top female cyclists to determine the 2022 Champions.”
The CG Insurance Bermuda National Championship Series began with the Individual Time Trial on June 19th at Southside with titles being claimed by White Open Male, Conyers Open Female, Elizabeth Stewart Masters Female, Steve Smith Masters Male, Tommy Marshall Junior Male, Charlotte Millington Junior Female.
Next up is the Road Race which takes place this Sunday, June 26th starting and finishing on Kindley Field Road, with racing through St. Davids to the Swizzle Inn roundabout and back. The final event for the series will be the Criterium Championships held in the City of Hamilton on July 3rd. Because of these races, rolling and hard road closures will occur in the noted area and full course details can be found on www.racedayworld.com the week prior to each race.
Due to road works the CG Insurance Bermuda National Road Race Championship start/finish has had to move from Clear Water Parking lot to Kindley Field Road. There are no hard road closures occurring during the Road Race Championships, however Police will provide rolling support for each category.
From 8 a.m. until approximately 12 p.m. on June 26th rolling closures will temporarily allow cyclists to safely pass through the course and keep traffic flowing. The BBA asks everyone to please drive with caution and to please follow the directions provided by the race marshals at intersections.
