We've got an international field, so let's have an international audience!

Starting at 5:45 pm Vancouver time, the Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix will go live with streaming footage of the race available anywhere in the world at, including on mobile phones and tablets. The footage will be shot in HD with six cameras and managed centrally from the Global Relay headquarters located above the start/finish line.

We'll have pre-race interviews with racers and race officials and all the thrilling race action. We'll bring you the noise, the speed, the sprints and the mayhem of top-level North American crit racing, along with the signature hairpin turn, the bricks, the noise, and the charm of the historic Gastown Grand Prix course. You'll get it all from the starting gun to the spray of champagne from the podium. To top it off, calling the action will be Former Tour de France rider, Canadian Olympian and two-time Gastown Grand Prix winner (2003, 2005) Gord Fraser.

“We’re delighted to bring this great Canadian race to a worldwide audience,” said Warren Roy, CEO of Global Relay. “In addition to our Vancouver headquarters along the race course, we have offices in New York, Chicago, London and Singapore. We deliver our message archiving service worldwide so we thought we should deliver the race worldwide as well.

“We’re expecting a huge crowd on Wednesday, with racers coming from around North America, as well as Germany, New Zealand and Australia. Our goal is to bring the excitement of Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix, the speed of North American crit racing, and the atmosphere of this great Gastown neighbourhood to their hometowns and around the world. That way, the families and friends of New Zealand’s PureBlack Racing team, Germany’s Team Baier Lanshut team and our 2006 Aussie winner, Hilton Clarke, can join us tomorrow for an unforgettable night of racing.”
