Registration Opens for $105,000 BC Superweek 2013
VANCOUVER, BC (April 12, 2013) – Online registration opens today for BC Superweek, which includes the Tour de Delta, UBC Grand Prix, Gastown Grand Prix, Giro di Burnaby and Tour de White Rock. The men’s races are for Pro/1/2 riders. The women’s races are open to all categories. New for the men in 2013 is the UCI (1.2) White Spot Delta Road Race, which was formally the 3rd stage in the Tour de Delta.
BC Superweek offers nine races over 10 days from July 5-14. For stage racers, BC Superweek’s road races and climbs are a perfect tune-up for the Cascade Classic, which starts in nearby Oregon two days later. BC Superweek will also feature six crits, including three mid-week between the Manhattan Beach and Boise races. More than $70,000 in cash and thousands more in primes will be on the line in those three races, with crowds of more than 20,000 expected for the Gastown Grand Prix’s 40th anniversary.
