Ready, set, Giro! The Giro di Burnaby (pronounced GEE-ro) is part of BC Superweek, the richest event in Canadian cycling, drawing professional racers from around the world.
The Giro di Burnaby was named in honour of Italy’s most prestigious cycling race, the Giro di Italia, and is a nod to Burnaby’s vibrant Italian community.
This City of Burnaby event (held in mid-July) is quickly drawing attention from athletic and promotional circuits around the world, doubling the number of spectators and drawing an impressive number of cyclist entries. The quality and safety of the course, the generous prizes and “Primes” (short races with prize money) and the unique atmosphere of the Heights neighbourhood have all contributed to the event’s burgeoning reputation.
