The new BC Superweek Youth Series is a partnership between BC Superweek and Global Relay’s Bridge the Gap Fund, which is coordinating the series.
In addition to giving the up and coming racers (boys, ages 12 – 15, and girls, ages 12-16) a chance to compete in seven races over eight days, BC Superweek Youth Series will also give them a chance to test their bike handling skills at speed over the same iconic courses their heroes will race on later each evening in front of thousands of cheering race fans.
