Circuit de Mayhem

Brand new for this year is the inaugural Calgary Bike Week. Boasting an expanded Tour de Bowness on the first weekend and The Ride for the Wild Roses and Provincial Time Trial Championships the second weekend, all that was missing was a mid week race. Midweek Mayhem stepped up in a big week to provide not only their normal midweek criterium on Tuesday, but also the “Circuit de Mayhem” on the Thursday evening. In addition to all these great races, the Oval will again be hosting their wildly popular Youth Road and Track Provincial championships, which last year lured riders all the way from the Southern US States. Noel dropped Bike Alberta a line with the latest update:

Hi – Just wanted to let you guys know that we’ve set up a site for Midweek Mayhem’s “Circuit de Mayhem” (working title) race scheduled for Thursday August 7th down in Calgary as part of Bike Week.

The race is still solidly in the planning stages, but we’re looking good so far. The blog is setup to provide race info, plus a look behind the scenes at race organization for rookies. We’ve successfully hosted a midweek series for years in Calgary, but the ABA sanctioned road race is a new proposition and a big step up for us.

cheers | noel.

August 2-10, 2008. Mark it on your calendar; it’s going to be a great week of racing.
