The 2013 Giro d’Moose Jaw Begins!

The 2013 Giro d’Moosejaw is underway, 10 riders completed the Prologue tonight, a 25.3 km ride from Java Express to the Sukanan ship intersection.

The Giro has been posted on the Pavers Web page for a while now but here it is…

The registration cost is $10.00 payable to Mr Jim Large, that money can be dropped off at Red Goat Training center or at Boh’s Cycle, Cash only please.

You must me a member of the MJ Pavers, and therefore https://moosejawpavers.ca/giro-dmoose-jaw/ must be a member of the Sask Cycling Assoc.  Due to insurance changes you will only be allowed one ‘guest’ ride, if non members ride with the group they can void the personal and liability insurance for the entire group, so the leadership must be quite diligent about this.

If you missed tonights prologue do not worry, while the real Giro d’Italia finished stage 3 today, we have the entire summer to do our 21 stages and there will be lots of time to repeat the stages.  

PS: Our stage was 25 km long, stage 3 in the real Giro was 222 km long.  

If you have any questions about the Giro please ask any of the executive.
