Midweek Mayhem Cycling Association

Calgary, Alberta – June 16th, 2008

The Midweek Mayhem Cycling Association of Calgary is proud to present the inaugural running of “Le Circuit de Mayhem”, a new road cycling circuit race on the Alberta cycling scene.

Taking place on Thursday August 7th as part of the new Calgary Bike Week race series, Le Circuit will run on a challenging 5.3km loop in the Northwest of Calgary based out of the Bearspaw Lions Club on Nagway Road.

Midweek Mayhem is also proud to announce that along with being a part of the Alberta Road Race series, Le Circuit will play host to the 2008 Alberta Youth Championship Road Race. The Youth Championship and Alberta Road Race Series events are expected to attract some of the top cycling talent from Alberta, Saskatchewan, BC, The Yukon, as well athletes from the Northwestern USA.

Le Circuit is a not-for-profit event in support of the Alberta Provincial Cycling Team. Midweek Mayhem’s mandate is to promote weekly cycling race series in Calgary in order to help grow the sport of cycling in Alberta. As such, donating proceeds from Le Circuit to the Provincial Cycling team is a way to continue working towards our organizational goals, and to ensure that racers’ money is re-invested in the sport.

More information will be available soon, including the Technical Guide, but keep checking the race blog for
