The Hayman Classic will be run over a 20.7-kilometre course mainly in the town, starting and finishing at the high school. The race will see some morning road closures on Hillside, Haven, Okanagan and Gala Streets.
The ride proceeds up Fairview, White Lake Rd to Secrest and down to the highway – through some locals streets back to SOSS parking lot.
For Ron Hayman, the former Olympian and pro racer behind the Hayman Classic, it’s an opportunity to nurture and encourage young riders, but more important to give them a chance to compete. Too often, he says, young riders devote hours and hours to training but rarely if ever have the chance to succeed – and fail and learn – from a hard-fought race. The Hayman Classic helps to fill that void.
