VANCOUVER, July 9, 2013 /CNW/ - Allstream, Canada's all-business communications provider, is proud to announce that it will be the Presenting Partner of this week's Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix cycling event, taking place in Vancouver, British Columbia's Gastown district on Wednesday, July 10, 2013.

The Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix is the centrepiece of BC Superweek - a diverse series of cycling events that take place each July in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. This year will mark the 40th anniversary of the prestigious professional cycling race. The event garners international attention for its challenging course and historic location, attracting cyclists, spectators and media from across Canada and around the world.

"We are very pleased to once again partner with title sponsor Global Relay, our neighbour in Gastown and an Allstream customer, to present this exciting sporting event," said Allstream President Dean Prevost. "The Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix is a free and family-friendly event that is a great experience for participants and spectators and for the city of Vancouver."

Allstream will be a co-presenter of various activities and awards at the Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix and is also sponsoring the Trek Red Truck Racing team, who finished first at the Banff Bike Fest in June.
