    Giro di BurnabyJul 11, 2019

    Professional cyclists from all over the globe will race on the  fast and technical 1.14 km closed loop course on Hastings Street competing for over $15,000 in prize money.

    Criterium racing is the most action-packed, spectator-friendly form of bicycle road racing consisting of many laps on a course no longer than 2km in length and rarely lasting more than 90 minutes.

    The race is a chess match of strategy played at high speeds. Teams must decide whether their best chance of a victory is in keeping the field together for a mass sprint to the finish line on the last lap, or whether they are best served by getting a strong rider into a smaller breakaway group of racers. Of course, rival teams have different strategies and must adapt to the tactics and counter-tactics around them – all at speeds of up to 60 km/hr.

    View this high speed, high intensity race from a corner to see over 100 riders lean their bikes into a sharp turn while riding shoulder-to-shoulder or watch at the start/finish line to see the ultra-fast sprint specialists go for cash lap prizes (called primes). Many other locations on the course will put you within a few feet of the riders at full speed!

    Where: 
     Hastings Street between MacDonald Ave and Madison Ave
    When: 
     3:30 PM - 9 PM
