August 1/14 13:40 pm - SingleTrack Six Final standings


Posted by Editoress on 08/1/14
 

One hundred and fifty kilometres west of the town of Golden lies Revelstoke.  This former mining town, turned recreational playground, was host the final day of the 2014 Singletrack 6: the Red Racer Stage 6. 

A downtown start in Grizzly Plaza, and parade style lead out through town courtesy of the local RCMP, connected the riders to the Mt. MacPherson Recreation Area.  With the help of the Revelstoke Cycling Association, this network has grown to 30 plus singletrack trails with some of the most diverse riding anywhere.  Over the 47km, this stage would throw a little bit of everything at the riders: short power climbs, gradual long climbs, rocks, roots, flowy descents...the list goes on.

After 5 days in the saddle many of the battles for ST6 overall titles had been determined earlier in the week.  In the team event, the Open Men, Open Women, 80+ Men, 80+ Mixed and 100+ Open categories had been blown wide open.  The final stage would finish with each team gapping their closest competitors by at least thirty-seven minutes over the six days.  In the end, the slimmest overall margin of victory came in the Open Mixed where Anja McDonald and Tristan Rawlence took the overall by just over fourteen minutes.

On the solo side, dominance was the name of the game.  Kris Sneddon stood atop the podium five times among the Open Men leading to an overall time gap of 8:51.  Kate Aardal took the title for the Open Women with 5 stage victories by a combined 30 minutes.  Anthony Slowinski and Filip Meirhaeghe, in the 40+ Men, battled back-and-forth all week with Slowinski taking the overall by less than 4 minutes.  Golden, B.C. rider Rich Marshal was tops among the 50+ Men finishing out his week 2nd on the day but over nine minutes ahead of Tony Routley in the overall.

A series of four timed descents were introduced on Stages 1, 4, 5 and 6.  This 'race within a race' was largely for bragging rights among buddies and a fun way for the technically gifted descenders to show their strength.  In the end, Shane Kroeger's combined time of 27:48 placed him 53 seconds in front of Jonathon Firth.  For the ladies, Mical Dyck captured three of four descents for a 56 second margin of victory over Kate Aardal.

With six stages down the inaugural Singletrack 6 was in the bag.  Thank you to all our riders, volunteers and staff for making ST6 a huge success and one great celebration of Canadian mountain biking.  In less than a year we will do it all again with six new stages in the Thompson Okanagan!
