BC Superweek 2015 is official done and in the books. The most hotly anticipated week of racing didn't disappoint with its flurry of competition, excitement, fans, and (a few too many) crashes.
From July 10 - 18, featuring 8 races over 10 days, BC Superweek has fast become one of the most prestigious pro-cycling events in North America with a total prize purse of more than $120,000! Featuring 5 separate events as part of the series, BC Superweek consists of the Tour de Delta, UBC Grand Prix, Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix, Giro di Burnaby, and Tour de White Rock.
This year the Glotman•Simpson Race Team was stacked, not only with one of its largest contingents, but with its most talented, in recent years representing both in the women's and men's field, Pro 1/2 and 3 categories. The women's team flooded their races with repeated attacks, and earned a number of top ten finishes, while the men's team battled it out in the fastest and most grueling events, finishing strong in the Tour de Delta and Tour de White Rock Road Races.
Beyond racing, these riders are also our year-round club ambassadors, ride leaders and coaches. It is with much appreciation and gratitude that they were met with the support, cheers, and ringing cowbells from club members, family and friends. Our fan club was one of the biggest and most noticeable at each event - every cheer and scream from the spectator stands fed our racers with motivation to keep going and strength to hammer harder on the pedals.
It was fun while it lasted BC Superweek. We'll see you again next year!
