KIDS' RACE

  SPONSORED BY   Norco

The Kids’ Race has become a highly recognized and anticipated element of BC Superweek, Canada’s largest professional road cycling series. On July 15, 2016 the PoCo Grand Prix featured a Kids’ Race, sponsored by Norco Bicycles, for young riders between the ages of 5 and 12 years. The Kids’ Race was divided into two heats, with the 5 to 8 year olds racing one lap, and the 9 to 12 year olds racing two laps on the same 1.3 kilometre downtown track as the pros! Our 2016 event saw close to 200 participants. Registration is now open for our 2017 Kids Race! See below for registration details.
