With just days to go, the preparations are nearly complete for this year’s third edition of the Yaletown Grand Prix in Vancouver, Canada, scheduled for this Saturday, July 1, 2006. Despite the conflict with the Canadian National Championships being held in Québec this weekend, the pro fields are starting to fill up with top racers like Alison Sydor, Kirk O’Bee, Scott Goguen and Max Plaxton.
The organisers have announced that the on-line registration deadline is Thursday, June 29 at 5pm and that this will be the last chance to get the early-bird sign-up discount. There will be in-person registration available Friday night and Saturday at the Yaletown Brewing Company.
Just like last year, one the racing is done, the Yaletown Brewing Company will throw open its doors to host the best post-race party around, as racers, race crew and friends are invited to come celebrate the day.
This year the Yaletown Grand Prix will raise money for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Vancouver who deliver a wide range of health, educational and recreational services to over 6000 local children annually.
