Giro di Burnaby
July 11, 2013
Giro di Burnaby means “Tour of Burnaby” in Italian and although not quite as large as the Giro d’Italia (the second largest and richest cycling race in the world) the Giro di Burnaby is just as exciting to the Burnaby community.
A criterium is a race of several laps on a short circuit with the city streets closed to traffic. The high-speed cornering and sprinting in this event make it a favorite for spectators and provide an opportunity to get close to the action as racers reach speeds of up to 60 km/hour.
