SportMedBC Provides Medical Team Support for RBC GranFondo Whistler

For the first time, SportMedBC’s Sport Safety & Event Services team managed the on-site event medical coverage at this year’s RBC GranFondo. With help from event organizers our team coordinated over 25 medical staff and volunteers helping to ensure riders were well cared for during their journey. 
Four medical stations were located throughout the course along with a team of mobile first responders on motorcycles. 
“Keeping everyone safe on such a long and spread out course is no easy feat,” said SportMedBC Sport Safety & Events Services Manager Philippe Saucier. 
“As with any event of this size, the logistical planning involved and coordination with event organizers, community stakeholders, BC Emergency Health Services, and local authorities is a huge and complex undertaking. Luckily our medical staff was well prepared and up to the task.”
We look forward to welcoming the world for the 11th edition of the RBC GranFondo Whistler and UCI World Championships on Saturday September 12, 2020. 
SportMedBC provides event medical coverage throughout the year for events across the Lower Mainland and BC. If you are interested in learning more about event medical coverage opportunities run through SportMedBC or need coverage for your event please email
