Canada boasts another stage race

Kamloops to host Intermontane Challenge

Canada can count itself another cross country stage race with The Intermontane Challenge, a 450km race spanning five days from July 27-31, 2008. Unlike many races, this one will stay based out of one location, Kamloops. A singletrack, cloverleaf design means that every day racers will tackle a different course, and every night the competitors will end up back in Kamloops.

"The networks of single track in Kamloops are endless and exciting," said Dustin Adams, course designer, World Cup racer and winner of back to back Canadian National Championships. "The Intermontane Challenge will give riders worldwide a small taste of the outstanding riding available in Kamloops."

Local race organizers and creators, Chuck Brennan, Kelly Servinski and Adams, are looking forward to hosting the race in their own backyard. Servinski, who has participated in staged mountain bike races around the world, says he sees unlimited potential for the event, which will host solo and two-rider categories for men and women. Registration for the first-year event will be limited to 300 riders. The lucrative event will feature a prize list of CAN$60,000.
