Sneddon and Davison win BC Bike Race

Sager and Simms collect final stage victories

There is a reason the BC Bike Race is mostly won by regional riders. Technical courses require precision and to do that at high speeds is easier when you know what is ahead. Strength is important, but timing of energy use for the contour of the land, knowing where not to get hung up in tricky sections, and feeling confident in exactly how fast you can go through a blind corner all add up to better momentum and flow. You can always try to follow a local but they will eventually make a move that you didn’t see coming. A flick of the bars, combined with just the right pressure out of a corner sets up the bike and body for that squeeze between the trees you didn’t see coming. A sign of a technical course is when race history is predominantly on the side of locals and the time gaps from the front to back stretch over hours.

Men

In the end, Sechelt resident Kris Sneddon (Kona Racing) took home yellow for the second year. Throughout the week, he attacked in the trail and on the climbs and was probably the most all around rider in the men's race.

Pulled into the second overall position was his Kona teammate, American, Spencer Paxson. Tristan Uhl (787 Racing) was probably as capable of a rider on the descents as Sneddon, but as a first timer to the race he had the newness of the course and his admittedly lackluster climbing working against him.

Kona’s broom wagon was in town and ready to work for Sneddon. Uhl, from Austin Texas, never stopped attacking, and even on the last day he exploded off the front early as one last effort before the curtains closed. He faded hard and finished the lowest he had all week in ninth place, but still managed to hold on to third overall.

The stage wins were split three for Sneddon, two - including today - for Jason Sager (Backcountry Bikes), one for Barry Wicks of Kona, and one for Uhl. Tristan is the only rider who was doing the BCBR for the first time.

Sager’s second victory of the week came when he used his experience coming into the finishing turn to cut a sharp inside corner and come around Wicks for the stage win. It was a fitting finish for the Backcountry Bikes rider who claims to be on the retirement plan but can’t quite let go of his fitness or love of strategy. He ended up seventh in the overall.

"It doesn’t matter how your results are at BC you always have an awesome time.There is no better riding or racing anywhere," said Sager.

Women

Last year’s second place overall finisher and Whistler winner Kim Hurst entered the race looking to win stages but had come up short throughout the week. She decided this would be her last chance, and she lost no time going off the front to chase down the podium. She was in the lead looking confident when a racer ahead of her crashed and came down hard. Hurst stuck to the honor system of the race and stayed with the rider until help was able to come. Even though she didn’t gain the podium spot in the way she hoped for, she stood on it with the rest of the women at the end of her day in honor of her care for a fellow racer.

Probably the most exciting race of the week to watch was the women’s battle for the podium. It came down to a four-minute gap in Whistler between Wendy Simms (Kona Racing) and Lea Davison (Specialized Bicycles). Three different women went to the top of the podium throughout the week but the battle for first was between current US National Champion Davison and multi-time winner Simms. Each rider had reason to not be on best form for the BCBR, Davison five months out of hip surgery, and Simms returning to school as well as a general redirection away from racing.

On the first day, Davison gave everyone a reason to perk up and take notice when she opened up the week with a win in the North Shore. This Vermont native could not only climb fast, she also had the confidence and poise to bag one of the most technically challenging courses in this years race. From there on, it was a game of hot potato with first place between her and Simms and Sonya Looney (Topeak Ergon) who snagged the Powell River stage after a hard stage 2 where her normal sunny disposition was challenged by a tough day.

Simms went in to stage six with a five-minute gap on Davison, but the American’s tenacious attacks gave her a nine-minute win at the end of the day and moved her into the yellow jersey. Coming into the short final stage, closing a four minute gap seemed highly unlikely for Simms at the start of the day. True to her competitive spirit she didn’t let that deter her from attacking and putting Davison’s legs in shackles.

When Simms crossed the line first everyone checked the time to see what the gap to Davison would be. Two and a half minutes later she crossed the line winning the BC Bike Race by 1:49 after seven days and 18 hours of racing.

"Today I actually fell apart at the seams a little bit. I was super tired and honestly if there was 10 more km in the stage I would have lost it," said Davison. "It’s amazing to have it this close. A couple minutes separating us after 18 hours of racing so it’s been really fun with different faces on the podium."

It was Davison’s first time at the BC Bike Race, and she couldn’t wipe the grin off her face when talking about the race.

"It has amazing singletrack, is super fun, this race is very impressive, from transporting 600 people to the showers. I would suggest it to anyone. It should pretty much be on every mountain biker’s life list."

Very rarely does the women’s field have the depth of talent it did this year which made the racing that much more exciting to watch and to be a part of.

"It’s been fun having it be more competitive. It’s good to see and it’s bound to happen. You don’t have to worry too much about your reputation by getting smoked by Lea. She’s an awesome rider. She’s great technically and she’s super fit," said Simms.

Enduro men

One category that didn’t get much attention this year was the enduro part of the BC Bike Race. The race within the race got to a slow start when the timing in North Vancouver encountered some issues. This year the enduro format reduced its number of segments to one each day instead of two for the first six days of the race.

Andreas Hestler (Rocky Mountain Bicycles) ended up returning to the enduro top spot after getting bumped last year. He only had the slimmest eight-second margin over second place finisher Jeff Beaston from Courtney, BC. An even thinner margin of four seconds separated Beaston from Logan Wetzel (Transition Bikes). It was a week of exchanging stage wins and if Wetzel had not plowed his face into the ground in Squamish he might have had the 12 seconds he needed to win the overall.

The enduro riders are trying to shaving seconds by saving energy before each stage and taking lines a more conservative general classification rider would resist attempting. Beaston and Hestler each live near where a stage was held and Wetzel made the relatively short drive up from Bellingham, Washington to tackle the BCBR enduro overall.

When asked why a local such as himself would do the race, Beaston sited the vibe more than anything of the event as the appeal. "I never wanted to do it before then last year. I went and watched a stage, and something flipped. Looked really cool the excitement and the people were stoked. It was then I decided to do my local race. I’d do it again every couple years."

Wetzel last did the race in 2008 and noticed the change. "Back then it was longer days with a lot more fireroad. It’s definitely better now. It’s a little more condensed and higher quality. You have a little more time to relax. But it’s still very challenging."

Enduro women

In the women's category of the enduro, the top two spots were taken by Catherine Pendrel (Luna Chix) and Wendy Simms (Kona Racing). Those two are some of the smoothest riders any where and have raced on the international scene for years. It was third place finisher Emilie Thy of Cumberland who entered the race the week before it started with a friends entry that really showed her grassroots chops. She may not have been as fast in the overall, but her placing proves that the enduro rider can come from a different segment of fitness and still be competitive with some of the best riders in the world.

The only difficulty Thy had was getting around the slower riders around her. Pendrel and Simms were going hard and amongst riders who are of similar riding ability. They took the course at a more relaxed pace until the enduro segments which meant more people to come around when she dropped in.

To the guys out there in her way, she had to do the best she could to get around them. "I say please please please let me by, to a lot of stubborn guys that maybe aren’t so excited about girls passing them going down. Then I say please some more and then I just cut inside the corner."

Duos

There are a lot of great races going on at the BC Bike Race but the duo category is the one that has the most tradition. The BCBR started out as a duo only race before allowing the solo category. Part of the reason was to keep a buddy system on the longer point to point days when being lost and alone on technical trail was more of a safety issue.

This year the category had less competition but the teams at the top were winning the overall in stages and proving that two people can go fast. The other interesting element to the two top teams was the composition of an older more experienced rider leading a younger first timer through the trails of British Columbia.

The Rocky Mountain Bicycles duo men's team of Greg Day and Quinn Molberg, who both live in Squamish, ended the week with another win in their category as well as a top 10 finish in the overall stage in Whistler. Probably the highlight of their week was winning the overall stage in Squamish where both live within hucking distance to the trails they raced on. Getting to race at home can be extra motivation when you have your support network there cheering you on. For Molberg that was "Friends and family. Parents, brother sister, girlfriend, bike coach. Everyone that is meaningful." on the sidelines giving you the boost you need.

Luna Chix women's duo team of Catherine Pendrel and Maghalie Rochette were dominant in their category as Pendrel set a challenging pace for her enthusiastic apprentice Rochette. When asked how her teammate was and did they have any laughs on the trail, Rochette quipped, "I couldn't wish for a better teammate. Maybe she's laughing, but I'm just looking at her two Shimano stickers on the back triangle of her bike, and I'm watching that and staying there making sure the two stickers don't go too far away." Rochette's determination to stay on pace and learn how these stage races worked was clear all week.

"Maghalie never had done a stage race. She was wondering how hard can we dig and the more days we did, the more confidence she got and that became 'Hey I can do this,'" said Pendrel "She's so positive all the time and receptive to learning. She's a really good partner to have."
