Event Information

The PoCo Grand Prix is a criterium bike race which is part of BC Superweek and features Pro/Am male and female cyclists from around the world competing for their spot on the podium.

“The PoCo Grand Prix will be Port Coquitlam’s chance to shine as it exposes our city to spectators and cycling fans from Canada and around the world,” said Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore. “This will be a great opportunity to show off our amenities, natural beauty, charming downtown and amazing community spirit, and we’re also looking forward to the economic spinoffs that BC Superweek will bring to our city and our local businesses.”

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