The Gastown Grand Prix (GGP) presented by Global Relay is a prestigious Canadian Pro 1/2 criterium race with a long and rich history. Many great names in North American cycling have raced in this important event over the years, spurring the Gastown Grand Prix on to becoming one of the most popular one-day bike races in North America. Cycling greats like Ron Hayman, Alex Steida and Alison Sydor have thrilled GGP audiences over the years with their displays of racing brilliance.
The cobbled streets of Gastown are transformed into a cycling raceway. Thousands of people crowd the sidelines watching cyclist speed through the short course filled with hair pin turns and endless excitement.
The 360/ virtual reality video gives you a taste of what the experience is all about. Riders literally graze the median fence that separates spectators from the course. It’s something that is not to be missed but if you did here’s a summery of the day in 360/ VR.
