BC Bike organizers announced their seven day, seven stage race, scheduled for June 28 - July 4 has sold out. Situated in British Columbia, the race will take advantage of the province's diverse natural features including spectacular views, ocean crossings, and of course, mountains.
Commenting on the ever-increasing popularity of mountain bike stage races, BC Bike race founder and president Dean Payne explained why events like his are so appealing. "It's the sense of completion at the end that really makes the difference, when you set yourself a major goal for the year, you enable your training to have a purpose and then through the event your achievement is really about yourself overcoming a challenge."
Last year's event was won by Chris Eatough & Jeff Schalk (Trek / VW). For more information or to find out how to join the wait list, visit www.bcbikerace.com.
