WE BROUGHT WORLD CLASS CRITERIUM RACING TO THE STREETS OF PORT COQUITLAM...

More than 5,000 people turned out for an exciting day of sport, free entertainment, family activities and more on July 15 in downtown Port Coquitlam for the inaugural PoCo Grand Prix. Thank you to our sponsors, participants, volunteers and local businesses for your support of the first PoCo Grand Prix.

“We were thrilled to see so many people come out to take part in all the fun and watch the excitement as professional cyclists raced through the heart of our downtown,” said Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore “The PoCo Grand Prix was our chance to shine and showcase our amenities, natural beauty, charming downtown and community spirit to the thousands of spectators and cyclists from around the world. We can’t wait for next year!”

And show off we did…

The 2016 race featured a mass start and a 1.3-kilometre circuit that cyclists will navigate for 40-65 laps. Male and female cyclists flew by about every minute, making for an exciting spectator experience. Event day also included races for children and youth, and a Corporate Challenge relay race. ­
