We are excited to announce a brand new fundraising initiative that debuts on September 21st, 2019 – 24h Mosport Velo! Join 4-time Olympic cyclist Curt Harnett and put yourself through the paces!
Hosted on Canada’s legendary Grand Prix race circuit in Bowmanville, ON, 24h Mosport Velo is a 24-hour team relay that challenges riders to push their personal limits in support of Special Olympics Ontario. Mixed and single gender teams to a maximum of 10 riders are welcomed. Inspired by fantastic cycling events at iconic European race courses including Le Mans (France), Rad am Ring (Germany), Brands Hatch (United Kingdom), and Zolder (Belgium), this active team fundraiser provides cyclists with the rare chance to ride where legends race.
From a cyclist’s perspective, 24h Mosport Velo offers exceptional riding that includes pristine pavement on a closed race course, gently banked turns, and dynamic elevation shifts throughout the 4 km professional Grand Prix circuit. This event provides precision lap timing to track “personal best” performances plus team rankings, while also featuring a genuine pit row exchange zone to get riders’ senses racing!
This truly unique Grand Prix Cycle Relay encourages friendly competition that focuses on collective fun and fundraising. 100% of donations and participant pledges will support Special Olympics' athletes! All event action will occur at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in a festive atmosphere complemented by its spectacular world-class facilities. Each participant will enjoy various added event perks, too.
24h Mosport Velo will be an extraordinary cycling experience that helps make a positive difference in the lives of Special Olympics’ athletes. Please be part of our exciting new event by registering your team at www.24hmosportvelo.ca.
In response to cyclist wishes for more fast-paced fun, our inaugural event is adding the 360 Challenge! Lasting six straight hours (360 minutes) from 2pm – 8pm on September 21st, the 360 Challenge enables cyclists with limited participation windows to actively take part in the team excitement of 24h Mosport Velo, and the chance to claim the first 360 Challenge Cup!
