BBA President Peter Dunne said, “The Butterfield BGP is this weekend and the racing will be as exciting as ever. All of our top riders are on the island and ready to contest for the titles.

“We also have a few overseas guests who will help make the racing even more exciting. One visitor is Jabari Whiteman of Trinidad & Tobago. Jabari is still a junior [18 years old] and a friend to our top juniors from Youth Commonwealth Games and prior editions of the Junior Caribbean Cycling Championships.

“Jabari also traveled and raced with our juniors at the 2017 Green Mountain Stage Race so he knows out guys and is looking forward to racing in Bermuda. Keith Johnson, a former resident of Bermuda and a highly competitive Masters racer will be racing this year and should keep the races fast.

“As usual, the first stage is on Friday evening in St. George and then Saturday morning is an early start in St. David’s. Sunday morning is the conclusion in Hamilton.”
