May 24, 2009 (Vancouver B.C.) — The BC Bike Race ‘The Ultimate Singletrack Experience’ is a seven-day epic mountain bike stage race that takes place on BC trails hand-built by mountain bikers for mountain bikers. The 3rd edition of this incredible event runs June 28th to July 4th, 2009, from Vancouver to Whistler, and limited spots are still available. With just over a week remaining, this is the last chance to sign up for 2009!
Touted as a ‘must do’ in the world of mountain biking, the seven-day BC Bike Race journey – ridden solo or in teams of 2, 3, 4 or 5 – will redefine “˜adventure’ while defining you as a true connoisseur of the World’s best singletrack. Year one winner, Chris Eatough (6-time 24-hour World Champion and member of the Trek Bicycling Team), had this to say about BCBR’s inaugural voyage, “BC Bike Race was amazing. Best mountain bike race in the World, no doubt!”, and then came back for more in year two!
The 2009 course is shaping up to be the most amazing yet. Race Directors have been adding final touches to ensure that BC Bike Race packs more fun and thrills than ever before: Days 1, 2, and 3 get big changes to add significant amounts of singletrack; and, the legendary Days 4, 5, 6 and 7 keep all their respective highlights – at riders’ request – but get pumped up with even more trail time! Even better still, with the new downtown Vancouver start line, participant travel logistics are streamlined and simplified.
