This weekend's stage race on Gabriola Island and in the Nanaimo Region was really enjoyed by all the participants. The volunteers from Gabriola Island, who put so much effort into making the prologue time trial and the road race safe for the riders were especially pleased. These efforts were duplicated by MIVA's own members who did all the work putting up and taking down the courses.

Unfortunately, the participation was very poor, with only eighteen starting the prologue and about the same number riding in the road race , the time trial on Sunday morning, and the final criterium on the popular Boxwood circuit. A great pity because so many missed a superb and well-organised race.

For Kyle Waring's outstanding photo record of the race, go here for the prologue, here for the road race, here for the Sunday time trial and here for the wind up criterium. Results will be on the RESULTS page shortly.
