Conyers Dill & Pearman
Bermuda Grand Prix 2006
Race preview - finale to Prestige Women's Series 2006
The Bermuda Bicycle Association is pleased to announce the dates for the 2006 CD&P Bermuda Grand Prix, Bermuda's largest professional sporting event. Starting on Thursday, September 7 and concluding on Sunday, September 10, 2006, the four-stage race will again be contested in venues across the islands of Bermuda. In a sponsorship arrangement announced in 2005, offshore law firm Conyers Dill & Pearman will be the event's title sponsor through 2008 which will be the twelfth year of the firm's involvement with the event.
Stage locations will again showcase several well-recognized Bermuda sites while testing the strength and skills of both professional and amateur participants. 2005 saw the introduction of the XL Capital Gibbs Hill Challenge, a time trial format sprint to the base of the landmark Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, a race that will repeat in 2006 along with the CD&P Hamilton Criterium and Cheerios Dockyard Criterium and a road race stage.
In the elite women's event, the CD&P Bermuda Grand Prix will be the finale of the Women's Prestige Cycling Series for the third year. Automatic places plus travel support are guaranteed to the top ten teams in the WPCS as of the conclusion of the 2006 International Tour de Toona. The WPCS consists of three events in 2006, one less than its initial two years. But the reduction of one of the events will permit more teams to complete the series and receive the publicity associated with participating in the recognized events.
2005 General Classification winners of the CD&P Bermuda Grand Prix in the elite men and women categories were Ivan Stevic of Aerospace Engineering Group - VMG Cycling and Karen Brems of Webcor Builders Women's Team.
The CD&P Bermuda Grand Prix is organised and sanctioned by the Bermuda Bicycle Association and directed by Peter Dunne. The event relies heavily upon the support of dozens of local volunteers, the Government of Bermuda, police and medical services, additional sponsors and numerous organizations that provide products and services.
