Volunteers are an essential component of the New West Grand Prix. Here’s a profile on one.
New Westminster, BC – It took some veteran savvy, but Florenz Knauer defended his title as New West Grand Prix champion on Tuesday night at the second edition of BC Superweek’s newest race. Knauer, who’s from Germany but lives in Delta, BC, was inconspicuous throughout the race, but it turns out that was exactly what he had planned.
The fastest week in Canadian cycling begins tomorrow, July 6th, as BC Superweek gets underway with the Tour de Delta’s North Delta Criterium – the first of nine races over ten days.
It might seem obvious for the only bike shop in town to support a bike race like the New West Grand Prix. But for Gord Hobbis, the owner of Cap’s The Original Bike Shop in Sapperton, becoming a sponsor of the Grand Prix is about building a community of cyclists.
If participating in the New West Kids Prix has alighted your child’s enthusiasm for racing their bicycle, there are lots of great ways to further develop their passion for cycling.
