June 27, 2016 (Vancouver, BC) – One of BC’s biggest cycling Clubs, Escape Velocity pb Fortius has reached a partnership with Americas Masters Games 2016 to supply the volunteers and organizing team leaders for the Americas Masters Games, to be held in Vancouver this Aug. 27-29.
M1 Sports Management, organizers of BC Superweek, are the official organizers of the Time Trial, Road Race and Hill Climb on behalf of Cycling BC for the Games.
“Through this partnership, Escape Velocity’s youth teams: Team Cannondale pb Fortius and Team DEVO pb Fotius are able to give back to the Master’s cycling community that nurture and fund their development,” says Tom Jones, Event Director, AMG2016.
“Master’s riders and youth programs live in tight harmony,” adds Brian Storey, President, Escape Velocity. “Masters athletes provide structure to our club, mentor young riders, become coaches, and fund raise to facilitate youth experiences. It’s great to flip the equation and have the youth support them by volunteering at the Games.”
The Americas Masters Games are not restricted to riders from North and South America, but open to athletes from around the world.
