BC Bike Race Announces the 9th Annual Kazlaw Award. BC Bike Race and  Kazimirski Law Corporation are giving away one entry to the 2019 BC Bike Race to someone who makes mountain biking happen in their community.

Marc Kazimirski, a Vancouver based personal injury lawyer, a passionate cyclist, and former Canadian National Team racer believes in giving the opportunity to race at BC Bike Race to those who give back. “In 2007 KazLaw was created to make a positive difference in the way that personal injury law was practiced in British Columbia. “Our goal then—as it still is today—was to dedicate ourselves to the highest levels of service, integrity and excellence when advocating for injured individuals,” says Marc.

“I’d like to extend my deepest gratitude to Marc Kazimirski for creating the award in the first place; recognizing the efforts put forth by so many members of the mountain bike community. The BC bike race for me was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Having the opportunity to meet riders from all around the world and share in their astonishment for what the trails of British Columbia have to offer was a true privilege.”
