2008 BC Bike Race
"The Ultimate Singletrack Experience" 2008 Registration Hits 50%
Slated for June 28-July 4, the BC Bike Race has begun 2008 registration with a flood of international entries; they are already at 50% capacity and fully expect to sell out all 400 available spots (based on teams of 2, the BCBR also includes teams of 4)..
This year's inaugural July 1-7 run of the BC Bike Race turned some heads as race organizers defined their flavor - "The Ultimate Singletrack Experience" - in the world of epic mountain bike stage racing. It's no surprise then that Chris Eatough, the winner of this year's event and six-time 24-hour World Champion, praised, "The BC Bike Race was amazing. The best MTB race in the world, no doubt."
Beginning early and planning ahead are key phrases that stir the passions in BC Bike Race organizers and riders alike. For 2008 they both look forward to another epic, 7-day mountain bike adventure from Victoria to Whistler that covers nearly 600 kilometers and climbs just over 10 000 meters.
The brain child of Dean Payne, founder of sea2summit adventure races, the BC Bike Race is located on trails made for mountain biking by mountain bikers. "This is a mountain biking Mecca," said Payne, "Look around - every trail is a virtual legend unto itself!"
"Last year we were a new product on the market - it was a huge success. This year we are taking our time to ensure that no stone, no burm, no possible extra piece of tasty singletrack is left un-ridden", shared Days 5 and 6 Course Director, Grant Lamont.
Adventure hungry mountain bikers are lining up to shred the tasty singletrack being groomed for BC Bike Race 2008. All 400 (teams of 2 and limited teams of 4) are sure to be blown away by the end of their experience.
