Good news released recently: BC Superweek will be growing. Due to finances, the Giro di Burnaby and Tour de Gastown have both been missing for two years now. Thankfully the Tour de Delta and Tour de White Rock soldiered on. Announced this week, the Giro will return next year, mid-week between the two larger events in Delta and White Rock. Hopefully this signals an eminent return of the legendary Tour de Gastown as well. There are some excellent cyclists racing these events, and by nurturing Superweek back to its full capabilities it will be even more attractive for bigger names.
Professional cycling is on this weekend in White Rock, with the fan favourite criterium happening Saturday evening. Look for Garmin-Transitions rider Svein Tuft, to be out for a win after being beaten by David Veilleux in the Canadian Criterium Championship last weekend. (Yes, Garmin-Transitions is the same team you see racing in the Tour de France right now). If you’re interested in attending, maybe doing some photoging, let me know.
