RUSS HAY'S GRAND PRIX - JUNE 9
This is the “money” event — where elite and age group riders put everything on the line to claim primes (lap prizes) and cash prizes before a large rowdy crowd, just inches from the action, to be crowned National Masters Criterium Champion. Racing on a short, fully enclosed 1km metre loop around the BC Legislature, this European-style event features thrills and spills. Witness the “prime” and finish line sprints at Belleville street, or enjoy a bite to eat or a cup of java at the many “course-side” outdoor cafes along the route. Thousands of spectators line the route each year to watch riders reach speeds of 65 km/hr, side to side, wheel to wheel.
