The event attracts cyclist from all over the world. Last year’s Grand Prix attracted racers from seven countries and 21 states to Wilmington.

 

“We are very proud to display a national cycling banner in Wilmington, which says to competitors from around the world that Wilmington appreciates the sport of cycling and honors the athleticism and commitment necessary to compete in such a grueling sport,” said Mayor Purzycki. “We invite our own citizens and visitors from the region and across the nation to join us in Wilmington in mid-May for the fun, excitement, and competition.”
