Yaletown Grand Prix
MJB Breweries and the Trek Red Truck Racing Team are pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Yaletown Grand Prix Bicycle Classic to be held on Friday, July 1st (Canada Day) in the heart of downtown Vancouver's historic Yaletown.
Building on the recent and growing success of a series of races commonly known as "Superweek" and inspired by the revitalization of the Tour of Gastown, this year's installment of the race is destined to surpass the monumental success of the inaugural event, which attracted thousands of cheering spectators.
Over 300 riders are expected to battle it out thru the streets of historic Yaletown for a growing cash and prize list of over $10,000. The race features a brand new course designed for accessibility and excitement for spectators, safety and speed for the participants, and a race schedule to accommodate all categories of riders, including a new Masters category this year.
This race is expected to attract some of the top cyclists in North America and has the potential to become one of the premier cycling events on the calendar. Stay tuned for further announcements.
