BC Bike Race registration filling quickly

Organizers of the BC Bike Race, which is scheduled for June 28 to July 4, 2008, announced they have reached the 50% mark with regard to registration. All 400 spots are expected to fill with teams of two and four. The 2007 edition was won by Chris Eatough and Jeff Schalk (Trek/VW).

The 2008 race will cover seven days, 600km and 10,000m from Victoria to Whistler. The race is the brainchild of Dean Payne.

"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 berm, no possible extra piece of tasty singletrack is left un-ridden," said Day 5 and Day 6 course director Grant Lamont.
