Cycling event will be held on auto track

The 2017 edition of the Hayman Classic cycling event will be held at a motorsport speedway in the South Okanagan

The 2017 edition of the Hayman Classic cycling event will be held at a motorsport speedway in the South Okanagan.

The course will be held at Area 27, the South Okanagan Motor Sport Corp. track. The track is on land leased from the Osoyoos Indian Band.

“This is a world-class venue and a huge contribution,” said Ron Hayman, the former Olympian and pro racer and organizer of the cycling event.

The 4.8-kilometre curse will test riders’ speed, stamina and skills.

Global Relay’s Bridge the Gap has contributed financially to this year’s event. Global Relay is a major supporter of cycling in Canada and its Bridge the Gap program offers mentorship, coaching and financial aid to talented young cyclists.

For this year, the Hayman Classic will offer four events: a hill climb on the morning of June 9; the circuit race at Area 27 on the afternoon of June 9; a criterium on the afternoon of June 10; and a road race on the morning of June 11.

Registration for the cycling race opens on Jan. 1. For more information or to register, visit www.haymanclassic.ca.
