Annual Regina CC Stage Race
The Annual Regina Cycle Club Stage Race takes on a large role in the Saskatchewan Cycling Associations Provincial Race Calendar this year. The stage race has been re-named the "Tour de Prairies" and it is being organized as a pre-event for the 2005 Canada Summer Games (hosted in Regina).
$5000.00 cash prize list (plus many more draw prizes TBA).
(Cat. 2/3, Women, Cat. 4 and Cat. 5).
Race courses will be the same as for the Canada Summer Games (ITT course will be modified) and we have just about confirmed that the road race course will have shoulder and (1) highway lane closed for the stage race.
The crit race will be a points race for Cat 2/3 and women, which is the format for the Canada Summer Games. A great opportunity for competitors to race a points crit and provincial teams to pre-ride all the race courses.
The stage race program will be posted ASAP on the Regina Cycle Club's website (www.reginacycleclub.com) once we have confirmed road closure for the road race (which should be in the next 2 weeks).
RCC executive is working very hard to host the best stage race Saskatchewan has ever seen. The large cash prize list is one draw to attend but also the highway road closure will be enjoyed by all competitors. We joke that Regina is the centre of Canada, not hard to get to.
If anyone has any questions, please feel free to send me an e-mail. On behalf of the Regina Cycle Club, we look forward to seeing everyone June 4th & 5th.
