June 10, 2005 (Vancouver, BC) – Riders can now register on-line for BC Superweek, Canada’s richest week of bike racing (July 15-24), by visiting www.bcsuperweek.com.
Based in and around Vancouver, Canada, BC Superweek features seven races in 10 days, including the Tour de Delta (July 15-17), the Tour de Gastown (July 20), and the Tour de White Rock (July 22-24).
In 2004, North America’s top cycling teams, including Navigators, Health Net, Jelly Belly, Jittery Joes, Sierra Nevada, Symmetrics, Quark and Rona competed for $50,000 in cash prizes.
At the Tour de Gastown alone, 30,000 spectators turned out to watch cycling greats Henk Vogels, Gord Fraser, Tyler Farrar, Marty Nothstein, Sarah Uhl and Alison Sydor race for a chance to add their names to a stellar list of past champions that includes six-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong.
The early registration deadline for all races is July 1, 2005.
