Hosted by the Barrie/Simcoe Cycling Club, the 2nd Youth Cup of the season took place on May 30th and was a big part of the Barrie Pedal Fest event. 

Pedal Fest is Ontario’s first-ever all-inclusive Cycling Festival! Youth Racing, Community Walk, Roll or Wheeling, Para-Cycling & Criterium Racing. Pedal Fest also featured local food trucks and music all day with a special headliner to finish the festival off.

The course for the Youth Cup Race was 1.7km long with one punchy climb to the start finish line. A great venue for friends and family to watch, as the racers would speed past every 2-3 minutes. During the Minime road race the skies opened up and a torrential downpour ensued. This did not deter the young racers as they continued without incident to a bunch sprint finish.
