Port Coquitlam proved to be the perfect venue to host the 2016 Corporate Challenge. With five years of proven races to build on, the 2016 PoCo Grand Prix event was one for the books. Open to all cyclists who want to experience being a professional rider for a day, registered teams received four entries to not just challenge others out on the course, but get to experience the exclusive Mahony & Sons VIP Tent with sponsors and race supporters, while watching the men’s and women’s professional races later that evening. Three divisions are available: Competitive, Recreational and Women’s Only. We look forward to hosting you again in 2017!
Time Trial: All four members of the team start the race at their designated release time. A total of 8 laps are completed. On lap six, the fourth rider is dropped, on lap seven the third rider is dropped and on the final lap, the two remaining riders must cross the finish line together to stop their time.
Teams of FOUR. Relay format. Four laps per rider.
• Each team is required to submit a predicted team time prior to the race starting.
• Teams place themselves into 1,2,3,4 positions. Rider one from each team will start the race. Riders 2,3 and 4 are held in the corral area to be released once the rider before completes his or her required number of laps.

Refund Policy: Once a team has registered, it will be their responsibility to source riders to participate on race day. Should a rider from a team not be able to compete who was registered prior to race day, a backup rider may take that rider’s place. Unfortunately, there is no refund policy for a team’s registration.
