Queen's Park Grand Prix Sunday 19th - You Gotta Be There

Hello everyone, this weeked some top flight racing will be happening in the downtown core of Toronto. Having just spent the weekend in Montreal watching the pros tackle a tough 12km course, with lots of people out cheering on the competitors, I am hopeful that Toronto demonstrates the same spirit.

The races are limited to a Masters 1 & 2 race at 8:30am, an Elite Women's race at 10am and the pro race at noon. We have great representation with Marc and Demetre going to the start line in the first race and Jamie facing off with some of the best women in Canada at 10am. While we don't have anyone registered in the Pro Race, this is a great opportunity to show Toronto the spirit of bike racing, and watching Ryder Hesjedal and Michael Barry fight it out with some less known but very competitive racers (including those from the Spidertech continental pro team led by Steve Bauer).

Please respond if you are planning to attend, perhaps we can get a sea of BCC team colours flying at a "corner"

Dan, don't forget the banners!
