Queen stage takes a toll on tired racers and battered bikes

The Queen stage from Earls Cove to Sechelt in the BC Bike Race is often the most tactile of all the stages. Bodies are beginning to feel the aches, pains, and euphoric effects of three days of trail riding. The forest texture changes from the extra lush first three days to a crispness that tells the tale of a drier understory when tires press into loamy trails minus the moisture content. Visually the eyes are constantly adjusting to a white light piercing through the forest canopy, causing a dappled effect that often feels more like riding in a club with a strobe light and disco ball. By day four, the bike, body, and trail are starting to become one unit dancing together between the start and finish lines.

Today's sea level start from the Earls Cove Ferry terminal gave the climbers a chance to make an early impact on the race before traversing the upper elevations of the Sunshine Coast. Over the years, this has proven to be a stage in which moves are made and the race can often shift in a new direction towards a rider who has been playing their cards close.

Women

We saw a first time stage winner in the women's open category with Sonya Looney (Topeak Ergon) shaking off the effects of a stage 2 in Cumberland that didn't go well. After spending the week going hard early, only to be caught every time, Looney didn't change her approach and stuck to the same tactic. It's a bluffing move that can sometimes work if the other riders get complacent and hesitate a little too long. If you got only one tool and it's a hammer you'll eventually find the right place to use it. Looney powered to a two-minute gap over Wendy Simms (Kona) and another seven minutes into Lea Davison (Specialized Bikes).

"Today suits me because it was hot, it's rocky, there is lots of climbing, and I just went for it," said Looney.

Her early departure put Davison and Simms on the defensive.

"I was waiting for Wendy to come around me at any time. It's kinda stressful to be chased all day. It makes it more fun and makes you ride at your best," said Looney.

For Davison, it was a disappointing stage after taking the previous day's top spot. She missed a turn going up a climb as she was 30 seconds between both Looney and Simms.

"We had a great battle going. I had my head down and took a wrong turn. I was definitely deflated after that, kinda had a governor on, and it was a lot of doubletrack out in no man's land. I finally came around mentally once we hit the singletrack," said Davison.

It should be noted that Davison was eating a hot dog from the food truck who was serving homemade dogs. As a passerby jokingly commented on her food choice for athletes she quickly said, "I eat hotdogs, you can tell the world."

Men

Kris Sneddon (Kona Racing) won his hometown stage for the second year in a row, but it wasn't an easy job and he had to fight his way back from an early mechanical. After a flat on the first singletrack descent, his Kona teammate Barry Wicks did a quick wheel swap so Sneddon could get back in the race before the lead group got away. It's easy to stay confident on trails you ride regularly and his patience got him back into the main group only partially spent.

The group of Sneddon, Jason Sager (Backcountry Bikes), Tristan Uhl (787 Racing), and Spencer Paxson (Kona Racing) reformed and motored on. It was a day where almost everyone had a mechanical issue to deal with.

After Sneddon fixed his flat, Sager was delayed at an aid station with a loose crank. He chased back on to the group eventually but his strength was fading. Just before the Cabin Fever Trail, Paxson's spare tube fell into his rear cassette and left him falling off the pace of Sneddon and Uhl who had a clean race for the day. They all managed to come back together through aid station two, but Sneddon finally got his second wind and started reeling in the finish line with some pressure in the singletrack.

Sager had another issue, Paxson couldn't call a lifeline to increase his pace and eventually Uhl came around the fading Paxson but it was too late for him to close down the gap in the final stretches of the day and he ended with a second place podium only 23 seconds down with Paxson only down another 18 seconds.

Duo
The men's duo team of Greg Day and Quinn Moberg (Rocky Mountain Bicycles) captured another win. In the women's duo field the powerhouse team from Luna Chix, Catherine Pendrel and Maghalie Rochette, continued to have no hammer home their intent on winning every stage. In the process Pendrel earned a second place on the enduro podium.

Enduro

Jeff Beaston and Tristan Uhl took the top two spots in the men's enduro class with Andreas Hestler pulling down a third place only one second back.

For the women, Emilie Thy of Canada took the short but challenging enduro stage.
