The Comox Valley Cycle Club hosts one of their premier events this weekend (July 14-15), the 2012 Dove Creek Omnium.
The three-stage event includes a time trial, criterium and road race. A growing group of talented junior riders are set to take the challenge along with masters and Cat. A, B and C cyclists.
Spectators are welcome at all events, but organizers suggest the crit is the race to watch as there is plenty of action on a tight circuit.
Action gets underway Saturday morning with the time trial at 11 a.m. on Burns Road (near the Dove Creek Hall). The crit runs from 3 to 8 p.m. in Royston just off Cameron Road.
The ominium wraps up Sunday morning with a road race on the Dove Creek circuit.
Organizers invite all those interested in cycling to come out and enjoy the racing, and for those who would like to know more about the sport there will be an information booth set up in Royston during the criterium.
