North Delta Criterium


Start & Finish: 84 Avenue – west of 114 Street, North Delta Social Heart.
Tour de Delta kicks off with the North Delta Criterium. This exhilarating event features a 1.2km loop around the Social Heart of North Delta. Spectators will see the athletes pass by 70 times as they negotiate a course with a fast downhill section going into an open left hand turn that will see the riders hit speeds of more than 70km/hr. The finish of the race will also be exciting to watch as the athletes will only have less than 100m out of the final corner of the race to sprint to the line.
