Mr. Dunne thanked Butterfield –the Grand Prix’s Title Sponsors – for its generous donation, adding: “The Bermuda Bicycle Association is thrilled to have Butterfield's support for this most significant race of our calendar.  Having a partner such as Butterfield will allow us to continue the 20 year tradition of the Bermuda Grand Prix that has served to highlight the development of the sport of cycling in Bermuda.”
