George Town, Cayman Islands | February 23rd, 2023 – The Catalyst Group (“Catalyst”), a global financial services firm headquartered in George Town, Grand Cayman, has recently announced its partnership with Cayman Cycling, the governing body for cycling in the Cayman Islands.
A registered Non-Profit Organization, Cayman Cycling organizes and supports a full calendar of local recreational cycling, racing and charity events. Having celebrated its 40th anniversary last year, Cayman Cycling and its small, but dedicated team of voluntary directors, is looking to the future as they expand their local events and initiatives.
This new sponsorship arrangement will see Catalyst serve as the Official Race Partner for all local racing events, including the May Series, National Championships, and the Cayman Cup. The additional financial support provided by Catalyst will increase opportunities for participation at all levels, and further enable their mission of championing local racing, recreational cycling and supporting the ambitions and campaigns of the Islands’ international athletes.
Daniel Cummings, President of Cayman Cycling was excited about the prospect of partnering with Catalyst, “We always aim to work with partners who share our vision and passion for cycling. The valuable impact we strive to make would not be possible without collaboration with generous local partners like Catalyst. Cycling in Cayman has undergone a transformation in the last three years, with increased interest and participation in local cycling events. With Catalyst on board as our Official Race Partner, their support will be critical in ensuring we continue to provide our local athletes with the best racing opportunities and experiences. “
Speaking of their hopes for the partnership, Benji Reid, Co-Founder and Co-Managing Partner of The Catalyst Group, remarked, “We are extremely proud to be able to support Cayman Cycling as the Official Race Partner for the 2023 season. We recognize the hard work and dedication that the team puts in to delivering a competitive race series, and supporting their elite athletes, as well as their ongoing efforts to broaden participation in cycling at junior and recreational levels, and we hope that our involvement will provide them with the support they need to keep pushing the boundaries and developing cycling as a leading sport in the Cayman Islands.”
