The Butterfield Bermuda Grand Prix takes place this weekend — with scores of cyclists ready to show off their pedal power.

The three-day event is a feast of racing for riders and fans, and gets under way with the time trial in St George’s at King’s Square.

Southside, St David’s, is the stage for Saturday’s road race, while the weekend comes to a close with the criterium in Hamilton, where the lap includes a stretch along Front Street.

For the fourth consecutive year, The Bank of N.T. Butterfield & Son Limited (Butterfield) is supporting the event as title sponsors, contributing $10,000 and volunteer support.

Butterfield’s Executive Vice President, Group Capital Markets & Treasury, Curtis Dickinson said: “Butterfield is pleased to support this world-class event and endorse the Bermuda Bicycle Association’s efforts in the community. For more than three decades, the BBA has successfully developed local talent to represent Bermuda in cycling both locally and internationally.”

BBA President Nigel Godfrey said: “The 2013 Butterfield Bermuda Grand Prix continues the more-than-20-year tradition of Grand Prix racing in Bermuda and serves to highlight the world-class abilities of our local cyclists.”
