    Part of this years Canada Day 150 celebrations was the BC Superweek July 7-16. I wasn't able to attend many of these fantastic events but I never miss the Gastown Grand Prix Pro Bike Race.
    On July 12, 2017 This Historic Cycling Race on Gastown's cobblestone streets featured:
    Junior Races at 5:30pm,
    Women's 30-Lap Race at 6pm,
    Men's 50-Lap Race at 8pm.
    During the race a Bell is rung alerting Riders the next Lap Leader wins a prize - PRIMES (primz) Sponsors offer $250 - $1000 Lap rewards. This years Sponsors were very supportive adding to the excitement. Dr. Roger Summer created the Gastown Grand Prix in 1973 for the public to experience Professional Bike Racing in Vancouver. The event now attracts Pro Cyclists from across North America.
