Local bank OCBC is still committed to holding a premier cycling event here, even as it recently terminated its six-year partnership with Spectrum Worldwide as sponsor for the annual Cycle Singapore event.

On Wednesday, the bank posted an announcement on its official Twitter page, saying that it will be "working with new organisers for a new event called OCBC Cycle 2015".

OCBC head of group corporate communications Koh Ching Ching told The Straits Times that the split from Spectrum will allow for fresher ideas in organising such a large-scale sporting event.

Besides sponsoring Cycle Singapore, OCBC has also supported other cycling events like a year-long safe cycling campaign and the annual Singapore National Road Cycling Championships.
