Members of the Bermuda team for the 2018 Junior Caribbean Cycling Championships showed their appreciation yesterday to their sponsors Axa XL and KPMG for their support of the event and the Bermuda team.

Three team members, Ziani Burgesson, Nazarai Fox and Alexander Miller, visited the two companies with Peter Dunne, the president of the Bermuda Bicycle Association, to present a framed team jersey to representatives of the two firms to show their appreciation for their support of the association.

The full team comprised Alyssa Rowse, Kaden Hopkins, Alexander Pilgrim, Matthew Oliveira, Nicholas Narraway, Ziani Burgesson, Nazarai Fox and Alexander Miller.

Axa XL was the title sponsor of the event held in August and which attracted the best junior cyclists from the Caribbean to Bermuda to compete for the regional titles.

Motivated by the opportunity to race an international field in front of a home crowd, Team Bermuda dominated the event, claiming all six titles available and collecting an additional two bronze medals.

Accepting the framed jersey on behalf of Axa XL was Andrew Davis.

KPMG has agreed to sponsor the junior team, providing funding that will allow additional opportunities for BBA juniors to compete internationally and further develop their cycling. Charles Thresh was on hand to receive the gift from the team members on behalf of KPMG and offered further encouragement to them to continue to excel in their development.
