BCBR 2007: The Final Countdown
Courtesy BC Bike Race
The 2008 Dates for the 2nd annual BC Bike Race (BCBR) have been announced as May 26th-June 1st, 2008. The route will be essentially the same, with a few minor exceptions, and the experience will be spectacular!
Organizers will open registration in July 2007.
"We've been getting so many queries about next year's event that we just couldn't wait to open our doors to the eager bunch out there who are already manking plans to attend."
A Warm Welcome to New BCBR Sponsors
We are absolutely overwhelmed and delighted with the amazing show of support BC Bike Race has received from our sponsors and partners along the way. It's equally exciting for us to have more and more sponsors come aboard even as we roll into the final week prior to year one's launch!
We'd like to extend a warm welcome to the latest sponsors, and partners, to join us:
The Westin Resort & Spa - Whistler
Victoria Conference Center
Wherever you can, please support our sponsors and partners. This race would not be possible without their generous and continued support.
This is especially evident when partners such as Island Timberlands (ITL) make sacrifices that may potentially affect their own business in order to support the BC Bike Race. ITL made a very generous show of support for BCBR by agreeing to suspend scheduled logging operations on July 3rd so that racers may enjoy safe passage along roads through ITL property during Stage 3. Thanks to ITL, the race can go on! Read more in the ITL Blog.
And, one lucky 2007 BC Bike Race competitor will win a 2008 Trek EX 9 trail bike from the newly-revamped and yet-to-be-released EX platform!
Tune in to Catch the Race Week Action!
We are excited to say that there will be plenty of media members about during the July 1-7 BCBR race week, so there should be no shortage of race updates to keep you informed!
We'll be updating the BCBR Blog each night with the current race results and happenings of the day. The Blog entires will be availble after 10pm PDT daily.
During race week, watch the BCBR Home Page for links to media coverage in publications such as 24, Pedal Mag and more! Ride Guide is also spending the week with us and will be covering BC Bike Race during one of their future shows.
It's shaping up to be a great week!! Don't miss any of the action...tune in nightly!
